Risk-based Testing

For many years, the term “risk-based testing” has been used within the IT industry. Risk-based testing is “an approach to testing to reduce the level of product risks and inform stakeholders of their status, starting in the initial stages of a project. It involves the identification of product risks and the use of risk levels to guide the test process” [ISTQB® Glossary V 2.2]

The problem, however, is many people have little understanding of how to implement the process of risk-based testing to match the ideal of the definition.

This workshop introduces people to the definition of risk-based testing in terms of the relationship between risk, the management of risk and testing.

Target group:

Test Managers, Project Managers, Programme Managers, Test Analysts and those who have an interest in establishing risk-based testing in the organisation.
