TPI® NEXT Business Driven Test Process Improvement (English edition)
Over the past ten years, TPI® has proved to be the leading methodology to assess the maturity an organisation’s or project’s test process. We, at Sogeti, are very proud of this success, but this does not imply that we can rest on our laurels.
The business environment is continually changing and so are the demands on software testing. Sogeti’s answer to this challenge is this book: TPI® NEXT the Business Driven Test Process Improvement model (BDTPI).
The strengths of the original model (Key Areas, Maturity Levels, Checkpoints, Improvement suggestions and Stepwise improvement) have been kept and been made even stronger. The improvements that make this new model truly business–driven are the Clusters and the Enablers.
Since business drivers change over time and from entity to entity, this model is flexible and adaptable, and works in synch with Sogeti’s other world-leading test methodology, TMap®. However, the Business Driven TPI model is independent, so no matter which test method is used, the TPI approach can be applied under any circumstances.
If you have not yet started to improve your testing process, now is the time to do so, and with the TPI® NEXT book at hand, it is now even easier to being and convince your stakeholders of its business value. But if you are already on the way to making improvements, a close look at BDTPI will help you focus even more on your goals - namely bringing business value to your organisation!
