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

Featuring 991 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Performance Testing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 991 standard requirements:

  1. How do you handle the performance-related system requirements, in areas like usability, security and maintainability, which nominally are outside the scope of the performance testing?

  2. What areas of the system can be minimally tested for performance without imprudently increasing risk, in order to conserve the test resources for the areas which need heavy testing?

  3. What areas of the system can be minimally tested for performance without imprudently increasing risk, to conserve the test resources for the areas which need heavy testing?

  4. Does your its solution provide performance testing to measure resource usage accurately for each function at different usage levels and develop a system model?

  5. What useful and generalizable characteristics can be gleaned from the literature to create adequate/effective criteria for scoring performance tests?

  6. What do you learn from the behavior of the existing systems that are being replaced, as work loads and performance characteristics?

  7. What do you learn from the behavior of the existing systems that are being replaced, as workloads and performance characteristics?

  8. Do mitigating factors exist, as the effectiveness of other programs or program elements that may compensate for the deficiency?

  9. What types of financial mechanisms are most relevant for establishing a sustainable collection and recycling system?

  10. What is your organizational process for the minimum energy performance standards adoption and implementation?

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Performance Testing project with this in-depth Performance Testing Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Performance Testing projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Performance Testing and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Performance Testing investments work better.

This Performance Testing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
