ON REQUEST – Rapid Software Testing – Michael Bolton – (ENGLISH)

This is an offer for an in-house course for your team. Please get in contact to arrange further details.


Rapid Software Testing

Rapid Software Testing is a course, a mindset, and a skill set about how to do excellent software testing in a way that is very fast, inexpensive, credible, and accountable.

Would you like to connect—or reconnect—with your passion for learning in order to help defend the value of your organization’s products and services?

Do you want to get very good at software testing?

Are you…

…a tester interested in learning skills and approaches that will help you to become a better tester?
…a developer, business analyst, or support person who would like to sharpen your testing skills?
…struggling to determine the role of testers and testing on an Agile team, or in a DevOps context?
…finding it difficult to get the time or resources or attention you need need to test effectively?
…overwhelmed by or uncertain about approaches to test planning, design and execution?
…working in an environment where some people aren’t following “the rules”? Or following them too closely for comfort?
…having trouble finding the right balance between planning, documentation, and testing?
…finding that “industry best practices” aren’t best for your organization?


What is Rapid Software Testing?

No matter what kind of development model you’re using—Agile, DevOps, Lean, Scrum, or something more traditional—and no matter what kind of business you’re in—an established financial institution, big telecom, a medical device company, or a social media startup—the essential mission of testing is always the same. Managers, developers, and the other clients of testing have a central question: are there problems that threaten the on-time, successful completion of our task? Rapid Software Testing answers that question.

Rapid Software Testing (RST) is a complete testing methodology, designed for a world of barely sufficient resources, information, and time. It is a mindset and a skill-set focused on performing testing more quickly and less expensively while completely fulfilling the mission of testing. The approach begins with developing personal skills and extends to the ultimate purpose of software testing: lighting the way of the project by evaluating the product for problems that threaten its value.

The RST philosophy isn’t just testing with speed or sense of urgency; it’s mission-focused testing that eliminates unnecessary work, assures that everything necessary gets done, and constantly asks what testing can do to help speed the project as a whole, no matter what the development model is.

According to the premises of RST, software development is not only technical but also a highly social activity, performed by fallible humans under conditions of uncertainty and ever-increasing time pressure. Consequently, RST presents testing as an exploratory performance, combining test design, execution, learning, and reporting into a simultaneous, seamless process designed to find important problems quickly.


How Is This Course Different?

The Rapid Software Testing course is an intensive three-day, hands-on class, in which you do actual testing, working on exercises, puzzles, thought experiments, risk analysis, and scenarios—some computer-based, some not. The goal of the course is to teach you how to test anything expertly, under extreme time pressure and conditions of uncertainty, in a way that will stand up to scrutiny.

The philosophy presented in this class is not like traditional approaches to testing, which ignore the thinking part of testing and instead focus on narrow definitions for testing terms while advocating never-ending paperwork. Products have become too complex for that, time is too short, and testers are too expensive. RST uses fast feedback and heuristic approaches to re-optimize testing constantly and to fit the needs of its clients.

For private classes, we also offer an optional, free fourth day whose agenda is set by the client. The fourth day can be used for consulting, coaching, conversations with managers or developers, or hands-on testing; whatever you like.

What Will We Learn?

If you are an experienced tester, developer, business analyst, or manager, you’ll find out how to reframe and articulate those intellectual processes of testing that you already practice intuitively. You’ll discover how to model risk, how to design and describe your test coverage, and how to report problems and progress effectively. You’ll learn how to talk about the product and your work clearly without resorting to unhelpful and misleading metrics. If you’re a new tester, hands-on testing exercises will help you gain critical experience.

The class is centred around exercises and practical problems. If you want to cover specifics, bring specifics and we’ll work through them.
