Risk or Fear: What Drives Your Testing?

Many say they do risk-based testing, but walking the walk is showing to be more challenging than organizations realized. Teams are finding they end up testing "everything", which is counterproductive to a risk-based approach. The testing community must apply a truth telling question: What motivates your test coverage decisions? Fear or Risk?

Many teams are realizing after implementing a risk-based strategy, they continue to test from a place of fear as opposed to calculated risk. Others never reassess or renegotiate risk as their application matures. As the application under test matures, so must your strategy.

Key takeaways:
- Discernment: Test decisions, what is your real motivator?
- Embracing the concept, "What is good enough quality?"
- Reassessing risk by integrating new data
- How to overcome bias created by fear and previous failures
