Defect Prevention

Often testing is seen as a difficult and uncontrollable process. Testing is taking longer than estimated. There is little or no insight in the quality of the test process, and in relation to this, in the quality of the test object and the risks for the business. What has to be done in this matter?

Improvement of the test process can be a solution for organizations. In practice it is difficult to define how to improve the testing process. A couple of models to improve are available to support in this matter. A model will provide insight how mature a testing process within the organization is and provides an overview which activities in which sequence need to be implemented in order to improve the testing process in a controlled way.

The objective of the training is to provide insight in the importance of structured testing, the need for test process improvement, the different models and the change process to implement changes within the organization. Apart from the theory, the course contains a number of exercises in order to gain practical experience.
