Test Expertise


The test principles are a guideline for the motivation and mindset the tester has to assume in order to work in a result-driven way. They indicate how he can add value by testing. A structured test methodology is also indispensable. Together, the test principles and the test methodology provide the starting points for the set up and execution of a test project. But there is also a third aspect that is very important for the resultdriven tester. However complete the methodology is, it can never cover every situation. There will always be choices that have to be made based on the tester’s knowledge and experience. A tester’s expertise is therefore of great importance.
