“No ducking way!”
This was the reaction from the team when I asked if we could accelerate the system test schedule and release early. Thank goodness for auto-correct.
We eventually did reduce the test schedule; we reduced it in half. And, we did it in a way that led to better quality delivered to our customers and we worked at a more sustainable pace.
The magic was to use Quality Engineering techniques to break down our test duration into a model with six variables, and then proceed to make improvements in each of these areas.
In this workshop, I’ll guide you through the process to model your testing duration. Next, we will review a list of strategies that you can use to make improvements to each component. Then, you will evaluate each of the improvements for efficacy in your organization so you can leave the workshop with a prioritized list of improvements that you can start implementing when you get back to work.
Please bring your laptop.
