Test Planning: Defining Boundaries and Setting Expectations

Jane Fraser, Electronic Arts

Is testing often the last thing considered in your projects? Does your test team always seem out of the loop? Then, Jane Fraser can help you. She describes a process in which testers focus on reaching consensus with the whole project team. With Jane's approach, you work through the requirements and design to document what you plan to test, how you plan to test, and a most important element-what you are NOT going to test. Learn how to reach agreement among developers, product owners, and testers about how the project will be tested before coding starts. In her work, Jane has found that defining the boundaries of the testing upfront has brought the development group closer to the testing group and improved communications about changes and risks. Join Jane to review sample test plans that help improve projects by setting the expectations early.
