When Quality Counts: Taking Advantage of Test Management

By now, it’s impossible to imagine going without testing at every stage of development when it comes to meeting the high demands placed on software being developed for digitalization projects in complex, mission-critical areas.

The process model by which the software is being developed is completely irrelevant in this process. Professional quality assurance and test management have become essential components of the software life cycle. Practical experience has shown that professional test management provides the following advantages:

1) Reduced costs

  • By identifying errors at an early stage, test management makes it possible to minimize costs.
  • Test cases can be derived by as early as the requirements phase, and can in turn validate the testability of the given requirement, which translates into an immense advantage for system acceptance.
  • Standardizing the test process makes synergies possible.
  • Test automation is a help in regression tests, which are absolutely necessary in the iterative process.

2) High transparency

  • Quality assurance results make project progress clear.
  • Modern test tools can easily give information on test status.
  • Differences between test runs, test data and test automation can be easily identified.

3) Involving stakeholders

  • Good test management involves stakeholders at an early stage.
  • Reliable information from test results helps customers to assess product quality and in turn gains trust.

4) MANUFACTURER-INDEPENDENT STANDARD FOR SOFTWARE TESTING

  • The ISTQB® test procedure has emerged on the market as a clear standard for software and system tests.
  • Systematic, practical principles for testing software ensure a uniform standard for the testing process.

MAKING USE OF THE ADVANTAGES OF TEST MANAGEMENT FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

We at Spirit in Projects made the decision to include the entire ISTQB® certification track in our training portfolio so that you can reap the benefits provided by test management. Our courses teach you how to make optimal use of professional test management for your projects and corporate environment.

Key topics include finding an appropriate test strategy, developing a valid test plan and properly selecting methods to determine tests. In addition, you’ll learn how to derive quality test data and test cases, and how to achieve almost complete test coverage. Last but not least, we’ll show you how to properly structure test data specifications, where test automation makes sense, what a meaningful test report looks like, how to lead a test team, and much more.

A structured test management approach, selection of the right methods and qualified testers and test managers will also ensure your company meets today’s demands on digitalization projects.

Our ISTQB® training courses are offered in partnership with Trendig Training, and bundle together our expertise in each of our areas of specialization – Spirit in Projects brings in its experience from the field of requirements engineering, while Trendig has specialized in testing for years. As a result, we can offer you practical training which is closer to real life than ever before.
