You would have heard about Testing Techniques used in software testing and also about Innovation Techniques using in innovating. But, how about using the innovation techniques in software testing. Innovation and Testing go hand in hand. What you will learn in this course is how to make your testing work more exciting and start to expand yourself in terms of your expertise. You will learn about a path breaking brand new approach called IPSOVI. This is quite a different new approach towards testing which will enable you to do not only better testing but also take you towards being cross functional.
As we understand that for a successful Agile Scrum team it is important that over a period of time the team members become cross functional. The team needs to move as "Team One" and for this to become real it is important that each member should be able to help each other and achieve the sprint goals and attain a good sprint velocity. This kind of shift in approach will transition you from a Conventional Tester to an Agile Tester. Using innovation techniques, like IPSOVI will help in moving successfully towards that transition.
We will also get pointers to other innovation techniques that we can build further on as:
VUDOCS, Random, Attribute, SCAMPER, Role Usage, Analogy, Mind Maps, Six Thinking Hats, Fishbone, 5W approach, IGNITE.
This is your opportunity in life to break through the barriers and through your software testing work move over to being cross functional and unleash the innovation streak in you and take your work to new exciting level.
Lets get started with innovation and testing and have a look at an exciting example of innovation from history.
Lets learn about IPSOVI innovation technique and how it relates to testing.
In this lecture we will learn conventional testing versus IPSOVI approach to testing. Also we will look into a typical test scenario of Login module and how IPSOVI approach can be applied to it.
We will be further looking into testing login module using IPSOVI approach.
We will look into another popular software module, the Registration module. We will learn how to go about testing it using the IPSOVI approach.
Lets look at other softwares and testing their modules using IPSOVI approach
We will revisit Agile Scrum methodology and see how the going by the IPSOVI approach is going to transition from Tester to Agile Tester.
Lets look at other innovation techniques which can further help in testing.
