Isn’t an Enterprise Test Strategy just for an Enterprise Project Release?

Have you ever heard a Project Manager refer to it as a strategy for an enterprise project release? The purpose and use of an Enterprise Test Strategy exists in many organizations because there is not a shared understanding regarding how to drive quality through collaborative disciplines. The Enterprise Test Strategy provides the foundation for how the collective software team delivers quality to the organization. The strategy encompasses a mission statement, standards for test analysis, planning and validation as well as expectations for interaction with cross-functional organizations. In this session, Susan will explain the value proposition of having an Enterprise Test Strategy, how to introduce the strategy to your organization and how to measure against standards set. Learn how to create a customized template and build a comprehensive strategy that documents a disciplined approach to quality practices.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define an Enterprise Test Strategy Template to communicate the mission, guidelines and standards for a disciplined quality approach to software development
  • Introduce a collaborative approach with Project Management, Development and BA teams to adopt new practices and disciplines to reduce defects in the Requirements, Design and Construction Phases.
  • Establish cross-functional disciplines to support specialty testing for mobility, big data, automation, performance, etc. with less failure and rework.
