Software Test Management And Test Process Improvement

April 20-21, 2017

This course presents the management of the testing process in the context of software engineering. It covers the application of quality risks and how to apply a risk-driven test development. The participants would be able to understand the value of testing in making a “go/no-go” decisions in software deployment. This course covers a modern approach in test process improvement. This includes the roles and responsibilities associated for improvement project. Gap analysis and next steps to undergo to proceed to the next level of process maturity is presented.

Training Objectives
