The Heart ( Ache ) of Business Testing
Business stakeholders are always looking for ways to generate more business, and hence earn great revenues (or find the perfect exit strategy). Paying for testing comes last on the expense tracker. Some businesses work without testing teams because they see testing as mostly a drain on time and money. The typical executive perceives testing as a key bottleneck to product releases.
In this session, Parimala Hariprasad shows how understanding the business model and business goals helps you test products better. She explains how to educate stakeholders about business risks. She explores ways testers can catch business blockers through early testing, and alert managers so they can be addressed quickly. This type of business information helps managers make better-informed decisions about the product early on. Some managers raise their eyebrows when first asked about their revenue models. Happily, once they see the value of business testing and how it could improve their revenue, they engage enthusiastically.
