A BRAND NEW class for those wanting to learn about and/or improve their testing designs and strategies.

In cooperation with Michael Bolton DevelopSense (CA), we are very happy to be able to offer you a unique chance to learn MORE DEEPLY about software testing strategies - based on the Rapid Software Testing (RST) methodology and mindset for testing software expertly and credibly in uncertain conditions and under extreme time pressure.



We got inspired by the daily work with test design and test strategies and not at least the brilliant blog post "Drop the Crutches" and Twitter series about test cases by Michael Bolton.


From the course description

This one-day, hands-on, stand-alone class is for new and experienced testers interested in learning rapid and effective approaches to designing test strategy—the set of ideas that guide your choice of tests. In this class, through discussion and practice, we will discover: 

  • approaches to developing a test strategy by investigating project information, surveying the product, analysing risk, and preparing for deep testing
  • ways to de-emphasize the focus on formalized test cases in favor of testing—evaluating a product by learning about it through exploration and experimentation
  • aspects of informal testing that you practice already, but that you—and your stakeholders—may not have realised were significant
  • tactics for chartering excellent formal testing when it’s actually necessary
  • how to describe and illustrate your strategy and coverage for managers, developers and other stakeholders.

I was very excited to be asked to be the Program Chair for CopenhagenContext 2017 and I am just as excited by the program that we have selected for the conference.

First, let me say that we received a lot of excellent submissions and that making the final selection was very difficult. In addition to having excellent sessions that fit the theme, “Let’s Step it Up with Context-Driven Testing”, we wanted to have a lot of diversity so that we would truly have a conference program that would be able to appeal to any and all testers. We successfully achieved diversity in many different areas:

  • Almost 50% of the speakers are women

  • We have speakers from 11 different countries across 5 continents

  • Different sessions are suitable for beginners through expert level

  • Hands-on sessions as well as lectures

  • Technical and non-technical

  • New and experienced speakers

I am very pleased with the program that we selected. As CopenhagenContext is one of the lowest priced conferences I expect to see you there!

Strategery: Agile Transitions and the Enterprise TCOE


For the last 20 years, the globally distributed companies have invested in large scale, heavily outsourced, Testing Centers of Excellence – the TCOE. The paradigm shift required to implement agile practices requires different skills, models, and tools which directly contradict the principles… read more HERE

Implementing Context-Driven Testing Keeps Kicking My Ass
– But I Think I’m Finally Winning!


Life has a funny way of teaching us what we need to know. Lessons are like the theory of reincarnation, they will repeat over and over again until you learn what it is that the universe wants you to know. When I reflect on the last 15 years of my software testing career, the lesson is clearly around transforming testing teams, specifically with implementing Context-Driven Testing (CDT), and I can honestly say, the implementation of CDT keeps kicking my ass… read more HERE
