The IT world has changed over the past few decades with new development lifecycles being adopted such as Agile and Dev-Ops, and new technology such as mobile, AI and robotics and user expectations for quality products have increased immensely. Yet resources for testing, such as time, money and people have continued to decline. In this practical workshop Lloyd Roden focuses on testing and managing testing effectively within those constraints. In this workshop Lloyd Roden will focus on two main aspects

How to test with limited resources and limited/vague requirements
Requirements are essential for the success of projects - or are they? 

As testers, we often demand concrete requirements, specified and documented in minute detail. However, does the business really know what they want early in the project? Can they actually produce such a document? Is it acceptable to test with limited or vague requirements and limited time? 

Lloyd will challenge your most basic beliefs, explaining how detailed requirements can damage and hinder the progress of testing. Lloyd will provide example applications that have no requirements, vague requirements, complex requirements, and detailed requirements. You will assess and test each of these examples in turn and will establish what is the best approach in these situations and for what reasons. 

Learn how to question applications and provide feedback on their quality using your experience and appropriate techniques regardless of the level of detail provided in the requirements. For each application provided - you will be given a limited amount of time to provide an evaluation as to the quality.

How to manage testing with limited resources
In today's fast-paced IT world we are often told to deliver higher quality systems to our customers under challenging time schedules, with fewer resources, and reduced budgets. As test managers and team leaders, we must become more effective and efficient with the resources we are given. 

We should begin questioning whether all those testing processes really must be executed and whether all that documentation should be produced, or whether some, if not all, can be streamlined. Are test plans really important? Are detailed scripts really useful? How can we create highly productive teams? How do we know our regression tests are effective and useful? 

Lloyd will reveal how the important tasks can be determined and how time can be allocated to them, while minimizing working on multiple projects simultaneously (a real time waster). He will also share a flexible framework showing which tasks can, and should, be streamlined so that valuable time can be restored to the busy test manager.
