Test Process Improvement with TMMi: doing right the first time

The aim of this interactive workshop is to provide background and to help the attendees understand why test process improvement is important, and then how to deliver qualitative and quantitative process improvements using the TMMi model.

It explains in detail what the TMMi model is, and why it is different from other test process improvement models. Time will also be taken looking at some of the benefits TMMi has helped organisations achieve.

To help understand the benefits of the TMMi model, the day will also include a quick assessment which will provide an indicative view of where within the 5 levels of TMMi, each attendees company, project or team is currently positioned,

Throughout the day we will relate our experiences from the delivery of numerous Experimentus TMMi assessments and provide practical remedies and strategies to make an effective difference.

Finally there is a review of a regular Test Maturity survey undertaken by Experimentus to obtain a view of the trends in the software testing industry today.
