Test Automation Strategy Workshop

The Test Automation Strategy Workshop offers a comprehensive, hands-on method for building a solid foundation and roadmap for successful test automation.

While test automation has become ubiquitous in software development, and the potential benefits are well known, many organizations struggle to achieve long-term success. Efforts are often focused solely on tool selection and framework development with little thought given to key foundational components including:

  • Organizational expectations and support
  • Integration with development processes
  • Test environment and data management
  • Required resources and skill sets

This workshop explores both the foundational components that must be in place to support successful test automation as well as the building blocks for an effective test automation strategy.

Participants will learn critical techniques for assessing their automation readiness and developing an organization specific roadmap for long term test automation success via interactive discussions and hands-on exercises. View and Download our workshop flyer.
