Risk Mitigation Using Exploratory & Technical Testing


Improve risk assessment, testing and prioritization


Watch Now


Take a dive into the importance of risk mitigation and ways to improve it through exploratory and technical testing.


When we test our systems, we very often use business risk to prioritize and guide our testing but there are so many more ways of modeling risk. If business risk is our only risk model, then we ignore technology risks and the risks that our processes themselves are adding to our project. Ignoring technical risk means that we don’t improve our technical skills to allow us to model, observe and manipulate our systems at deeper levels and we miss finding important non-obvious problems.

Too often people mistakenly equate ‘technical testing’ with automating because they don’t model technical risk. In this webinar we explain how to model risk and use that to push our testing further. We also explain how to avoid some of the pitfalls people fall into while improving their technical testing. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn:

  • What risks you are exposed to if you don’t use Technical and Exploratory Testing
  • How to model and target risk from a technical perspective
  • What technical testing means – it doesn’t mean programming and automating
  • The benefits you gain from increasing your exploratory and technical testing
  • How non-technical managers can help their testers develop technical skills and improve their technical testing
