What is included in Risk Based Testing

Course Description

This course highlights the importance and benefits that risk based testing can have in an organisation. Risk assessment approaches are demonstrated through practical exercises, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each, and assessing which will fit the needs of your organisation and the test team.

This course can also be run as a half day workshop, part of an implementation roll-out (educational) process to other departments once a risk approach has been agreed. During the two days, exercises are conducted to show how to create a risk based test strategy, plan and design test cases using risk as the major influence.
