We’re honored to welcome the authors of the new book “Software Testing Strategies”!

If you’ve ever seen a “test strategy” document that is just a list of test techniques, we hear you. Perhaps, your situation is different, in that you’ve never seen such a document at all. Perhaps you actually think of test strategy as the way the organization invests time in uncovering information about the software under test in order to manage risk. That’s fantastic. That said: If you had eight minutes with an executive who was truly interested in testing in your organization, what would you say?

Matt Heusser and Michael Larsen will take the time to walk you through their systematic analysis of what matters in testing for delivery teams. You’ll learn how to describe what you actually do, the current risks, what you could do — and what the costs will be. Along the way, pick up ways to visualize and explain testing with minimal information loss.
