Bonus Workshop: Mega-Actionable Continuous Testing

The benefit of this workshop is right there in the title — you will come away with actionable insight for you to implement in your testing strategy to ramp up to continuous testing. 

If you’re struggling to understand how to implement continuous testing in your company, then this workshop is for you. In just three hours you’ll come away with a solid understanding of the three pillars for implementing continuous testing and the tools needed to be successful.  

Most importantly, you’ll get your own action plan semi-customized to your environment and your team’s specific needs. Prior to the course, you will respond to various survey questions, and a semi-custom report based on your input will be emailed to you following the workshop. This actionable report will include tips and strategies for inspiring, motivating, and guiding the cultural shift required to make continuous testing a reality in your organization; recommendations around the areas your organization needs to automate first, giving you the most immediate results in your continuous testing journey; and overviews of modern testing tools that will help you achieve significant results toward continuous testing in the shortest amount of time possible.
