Business & User Acceptance Testing Workshop
User acceptance testing is the critical final quality gate before a system is implemented. It is the responsibility of the user acceptance test team to ensure that not only does the system meet the business objectives, but that all previous testing phases have been carried out so that the business can be confident that the system will deliver what is required. This workshop explains to attendees the context of user acceptance testing, how the test process integrates with the system development life cycle and the critical role that user acceptance testing fulfils. It also prepares attendees in how to plan and create tests for user acceptance testing. With an emphasis on putting theory into practice, this workshop is highly practical. Attendees will produce test conditions, test cases and test procedures using a case study.
