Many organizations embrace using a maturity model to assess and improve their software process capability. Because the prevalent SEI CMMi deals only with the overall software process, a number of maturity models have been introduced to deal with specific software disciplines, such as testing. Though less-known, such models may be helpful for your testing; but you need to understand how to make them work for you.
This interactive workshop explains key concepts and uses of maturity models, describes leading versions for testing, and presents a roadmap for overcoming resistance and applying a model to assess and guide improvement of your own test process. Exercises enhance learning.
What you'll get:
- Maturity model origins, common structures, uses, strengths, and issues
- Leading maturity models for testing, continuous vs. staged levels approaches
- Developing more specific criteria for assessing whether one’s test process satisfies model checkpoints
- Suggesting and implementing specific test process improvements
