Tutorial F2: Taking Software Testing to The Next Level - Which Process Model to Adopt?
Testing is often considered as an expensive and uncontrollable process. Testing takes too much time, costs a lot more than planned, and offers insufficient conception of the quality of the test process. Therefore, the quality of the information system and the risks for the business can be difficult to determine.

Many organizations realize that improving the test process can solve these problems. However, in practice it turns out to be hard to define what steps to take for improving and controlling the process, and in what order. Fortunately, based on the knowledge and experiences of a large number of professional testers, a number of test specific process improvement models have been developed such as SW-TMM, TMMi, TIM. In this tutorial, the speaker will provide an overview of these models and describe in more detailed the specific model adopted by his test organization.
