Influence Diagrams: A New Way to Understand Testing
As testers, we may want to find more bugs, but this may have an unintended consequence for developers: Developers now have more defects to debug, which affects their capacity to deliver new functionality. Isabel Evans has found that influence diagrams provide a simple way to understand and manage the complexities of key interactions among testers, developers, and business stakeholders. In this practical workshop with hands-on activities, Isabel will help you construct and interpret influence diagrams to illustrate typical team and project problems and solutions in testing. With just pen and paper—and plenty of discussion—you will analyze example problems and identify potential solutions, enabling you to understand how to build and use simple influence diagrams in your day-to-day work.
