Changing Team Mindsets to Adopt Exploratory Testing
Exploratory testing is a concept of software testing where the tester combines application learning, test design and test execution in the same activity. This approach can showcase the results that a skilled tester can provide with manual tests. In this article, Kimberly A. Stockett provides three key approaches about how to change the attitudes of your software development team to adopt exploratory testing.
Exploratory testing is not a new concept, but it can be challenging to adopt properly because it requires a change in mindset for the whole project team. Everyone, from the project manager down, has to get on board with the process if you expect to get the best results. Implemented correctly, exploratory testing can enable teams to find defects earlier, it can empower testers and boost job satisfaction, and it can ultimately deliver a better product.
