Test Scenario Design Models: What are They and Why are They Your Key to Agile Quality Success

Robert Gormley, Trissential

About the Topic

Customer satisfaction is a priority of agile teams aiming for successful product delivery. However, many teams continue to rely on functional and regression testing built on traditional, linear test case design. This approach is rarely customer centric, and it neither serves to validate the many different emerging layers of software architecture nor establishes a conceptual understanding of what should be built into automated tests. Consequently, traditional test case design has become an antipattern for successful product delivery. A scenario-based approach, in contrast, examines user behaviors to provide a consistent narrative to accurately evaluate product functionality, and establishes a tight boundary for automated testing of acceptance criteria. Using this approach, user behavior is emphasized, and test cases are short, concise, and driven by the language of the business. This presentation shows how to use the test scenario design model approach to accelerate testing by designing fewer, higher-quality tests, and explains how it can be used to support traceability and other quality outcomes.
