    Test Preparation
    Testing on the brain.


In a nutshell, this is the thought process on how applications are tested. In order to do this effectively, it requires a holistic view of the application from a technical perspective and a deep understanding of the intended use from a user perspective.

The process of defining the test preparation approach and which techniques are required for the stage the application is at, including:
  • Acceptance testing
  • Exploratory testing
  • Structured testing
  • System testing
  • Integration testing

Ultimately, test preparation sets the foundation and defines what is required to test, including;
  • Requirements/User Stories
  • Acceptance test creation
  • Personas of who will use the app
  • Technology stack
  • Script preparation if required
  • Environments and Data prep

Key Benefits

Efficient approaches to test preparation is key; if approached incorrectly, this part of the process could prove extremely costly.

‘Just Enough Test Design’ is an approach we apply to ensure that we demonstrate a return on investment as efficiently as possible.
