Improve Test Strategies and Outcomes with Mind Maps

Add to calendar

Do you ever sit in test strategy or test plan review sessions and get little or no participation from others? Are you looking for a better way to communicate important information around the test plan or strategy? Do you want your stakeholders to understand and engage in providing feedback and suggestions? Jennifer Bonine has a solution for you—a mind mapping tool that can help you address these questions. A mind map is a visual approach used to help organize information rather than a text outline or list. Jennifer helps you download a free mind mapping tool, trains you how to use the tool, and takes a real-life problem and solves it using the tool. She discusses the benefits of mind maps for solving problems that communicate information about your testing plan and strategy. Take back to your organization a working approach you can use to improve velocity in your testing cycles and planning sessions.

Note: To get the most out of this session, please bring a laptop or smartphone to use the tool.
