An essential part of testing is understanding how and when testing will be delivered. Sometimes this can be conveyed as part of a test strategy document. However, a test roadmap provides a mental model that outlines the test programme’s direction.
A test roadmap can become an essential collaborative planning tool – and as such is a great tool for communicating test plans and objectives to the wider team.
At a high level, a testing roadmap can contain areas such as:
Quick wins – which can be delivered towards the start of the roadmap
Strategy changes – longer term goals further down the roadmap
Re-evaluation points to measure progress against the roadmap
Every project is different, and one of the best things about using a testing roadmap is it can be done in a very flexible, dynamic way, which suits most development and delivery methodologies.
