A Test Strategy

Test strategies are in one sense personal - all testers should have one, or be able to relate to one. Testers should be able to identify one, or identify components that make a test strategy important to them.

I am currently re-evaluating a test strategy and writing this down with appropriate influences, partly to document a work-in-progress and partly to aid reflection and feedback.

The strategy communication (which is different from the strategy) is simplified as a mind map below - with all the usual restrictions with mind maps, simplifications and presentations.

Test Strategy Representation

Do you have a personalized or adapted test strategy?

Feedback, comments and questions are very welcome.
