Rightsize your Testing Process
By jogi on Nov 11, 2006
It was a very interesting workshop about process modeling („ Deming-circle“ ), planning- and implementation methods ( QFD - Quality function deployment), TPI ® - Test Process Improvement) and controling mechanisms ( GQM - „Goal, Question, Metric“ ).
It was funny that the instructor talked about „Excel“ sheets but he has also installed NeoOffice on his Apple Notebook and used it spontaneous in the workshop and it looked nice, except an issue in Calc I will submit on monday :-) OpenOffice.org was known by all of the attendees of the workshop and has been used as example very often in that workshop :-)
Some of the testers/test managers were also interested in our new specification template. It is a fact that also other, smaller project have a need to get testable and measurable specifications not only OpenOffice.org and not only Sun.
