  • Well has the test failed or hasn’t it?

    When should you classify a test as Failed? This sounds such a simple question and you may think the answer is obvious; however there are some factors that mean a well thought out approach can have significant benefits to the test manager.

  • Integration; the puzzle at the heart of the project.

    We have recently started working with a new client on changes to their testing and delivery practice. The aims is to increase the throughput of development and at the same time accelerate delivery and maintain quality. This has been running for a few weeks now and enough time has elapsed for us to start hearing stories about previous projects and what went well and what was problematic.

  • To release or not to release, that is the question.

    Here are two interesting propositions. Number one; test managers should focus on getting as quickly as possible to a state where it is obvious that further testing offers little benefit compared with finding out how the system survives in the wild. Number two; it is easier to make the decision to release a system when delaying the release to permit further testing is not likely to put you in any better position than you are already in.
