Business Driven Test Process Improvement
If you have not started improving your testing process, now it is the time to begin, and, with the TPI® NEXT book at hand, it is now even easier to do so and to convince all of your stakeholders of its business value. But also, if you are already on the way to improving your testing process, a close look at Business Driven TPI will help you focus even more on the goal of improving your testing process, namely bringing business value to your organization!
TPI® NEXT has proved to be the leading methodology to assess the maturity of an organization’s or project’s test process. The strengths of the model (Key areas, Maturity levels, Checkpoints, Improvement suggestions and Stepwise improvement) together with the Clusters and the Enablers make the model truly business-driven.
Since business drivers change over time and from entity to entity, this model is flexible and adaptable, and works in synch with Sogeti’s other worldleading test methodology, TMap® NEXT. The TPI NEXT model is independent so no matter what test method is used, this approach can be applied under any circumstance, in a traditional and agile setting.
The model provides a step-by-step guide to developing an insight into the relative maturity of an organization’s testing capabilities or -processes, with recommendations for gradual and controllable improvement steps
Testing is not a goal in itself but should support your business objectives. The TPI NEXT model offers the opportunity of using various business drivers, like time, costs, quality, etc. This enables your organization to focus a TPI NEXT assessment on specific business issues as recognized in your organization. TPI NEXT will address the possibilities of focusing on a specific business driver.
TPI NEXT offers a specific, balanced and correlated improvement path for your testing capabilities and/or -organization. The TPI NEXT model also provides you with a better understanding of the correlation between your testing capabilities and/or -processes and adjacent capabilities and/or processes. It will help discussing and addressing issues for improving the overall software process.
