The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Exploratory testing specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Exploratory testing Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 820 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Exploratory testing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 820 standard requirements:

  1. Design, execute, and learn. As a testing approach, exploratory testing is enormously powerful and widely practiced. Yet, it is poorly understood. Every tester can do it, but is it done well?

  2. What types of functional tests are performed on the software during its development (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?

  3. Are Acceptance Tests specified by the customer and analyst to test that the overall system is functioning as required (Do developers build the right system?

  4. What types of functional tests are/were performed on the software during its development (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, integrated testing)?

  5. More Devices, More Testing: Technological advancement brings with it more variations of technology to test. How will we test more in less time?

  6. What types of functional tests are/were performed on the software (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?

  7. Conformance testing (aka correctness or functional testing) -does the observed behavior of the software conform to its specification (SRS)?

  8. Are the error diagnostics, such as error messages, straightforward, or does the user need a PhD in computer science to comprehend them?

  9. Since the goal of testing is to find errors, why not make the completion criterion the detection of some predefined number of errors?

  10. Does the policy sets testing expectations for entity-wide continuity functions, business lines, support functions, and crisis management?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  4. Risk Management Plan: Have top software and customer managers formally committed to support the Exploratory testing project?

  5. Risk Audit: Can analytical tests provide evidence that is as strong as evidence from traditional substantive tests?

  6. Risk Register: Methodology: How will risk management be performed on this Exploratory testing project?

  7. Probability and Impact Matrix: Is the technology to be built new to your organization?

  8. Scope Management Plan: Are the existing and future without-plan conditions reasonable and appropriate?

  9. Roles and Responsibilities: How well did the Exploratory testing project Team understand the expectations of specific roles and responsibilities?

  10. Cost Management Plan: Is current scope of the Exploratory testing project substantially different than that originally defined?

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
