How to Achieve Customer Satisfaction with Risk Based Testing Approach





What is Risk Based Testing?

One of the most critical tasks in software development is ensuring that the product meets all of its functional requirements. In the beginning phases of a project, assessment, and evaluation are therefore crucial. The risk based testing approach can assist guarantee that risks related to both products and projects are discovered early on, enabling corrections to be addressed before they become significant problems in the future.


Product Risk Analysis Approach

This requires the participation of various stakeholders, such as Business Stakeholders, Project Managers, Business Analysts, Product Owners, Products Architects, Test Managers, and Test/Tech Leads, in order to determine the essential functionalities that could prevent users from properly utilizing the software system. It is also vital to discuss with clients which quality attributes will be evaluated while evaluating certain functionalities, such as Security, Performance, and Usability. The risk based analysis will help to identify the risks associated with the software product capabilities and it is associated impact.


Definiting a Risk Mitigation Strategy

Once these risks have been recognized, it is crucial to document user acceptance criteria in the context of product risk. Customers should expect zero errors in critical or high-risk functionalities, for example. In addition, it is essential to describe any project risks that may arise throughout development, such as costs associated with testing resources or development delays caused by unforeseen issues with external partners or stakeholders. One can look at implementing risk based testing in agile as well as in projects executed using the waterfall approach. After all, risks have been appropriately documented and reviewed by all key stakeholders, a Risk Mitigation Strategy must be developed and implemented to reduce any potential risks associated with the software system that is under development. This strategy should describe how each risk will be monitored and controlled throughout each phase of development in order to ensure customer and company happiness.


Employing a risk based test approach during the initial phase of development is an efficient method for ensuring that both product and project risks are adequately analyzed prior to becoming a serious concern. By integrating diverse stakeholders in the identification of essential functionalities and the creation of a detailed Risk Mitigation Plan tailored to your project’s objectives, you may decrease potential risks while simultaneously achieving consumer expectations!
