Effective Test Estimation

Estimations have traditionally been an area of business interest as they have a direct impact on the bottom line. As approximations and estimations go hand in hand, this science is often seen as a price to win. This course is designed to enable participants learn, experiment and implement the concepts involving application of Test Point technique for size estimation.

To enable a thorough hands-on of the concepts taught in the class room, the course is structured around a set of formal case studies.
