TMap NEXT® - BDTM Business Driven Test Management
This book offers business and IT managers insight into the possibilities of exerting increased business control of the test process: Business Driven Test Management (BDTM). The concept of BDTM prioritises the result and gives the client of the test process (whether a business or IT manager) the ability to manage the risk coverage, lead time and cost of the test process in both the planning and the execution phases.
The book also contains an introduction to and summary of the TMap NEXT® Test Management Approach. TMap is the industry standard for testing that can be summarised in four essential principles:
- Business Driven Test Management allows the client to manage testing on the basis of business considerations.
- A full description of the test process, from test management to test specification & execution.
- A complete 'toolbox' of technique descriptions and organisational & infrastructure support.
- The method is adaptive, making it suitable for use in a range of situations and environments (new development, maintenance, waterfall / iterative / agile, custom-made / off-the-shelf software, outsourcing / offshoring).
