Introduction to Risk Based Testing

The ‘Introduction to Risk-Based Testing’ workshop introduces the key concepts behind risk management and how it should be applied to testing. From the testing perspective, risks are associated with the deliverable software product (the consequences if the software fails in use)and also how the project is run (e.g. if development overruns so reducing the time available for testing). The three basic stages of risk identification, risk estimation and risk mitigation are covered in the workshop in terms of the management of testing both during project development and after the delivery of the software into use.

This one or two-day tutor-led workshop includes slides, exercises and practical work, and uses a hands-on approach based on group exercises and discussions. It is highly-interactive, allowing attendees to learn from the experience of the instructor and each other, and, owing to its interactive nature, each workshop is restricted to a maximum of 18 delegates.

The workshop is based on practical experience of applying risk-based testing on a variety of projects and will use the same principles underlying the new ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 Software Testing standards, which explicitly require that risk be used as the main driver for a project’s test strategy. In this way testing is used to treat perceived risks, such as by choosing which test phases to use and which test techniques to apply.
