Hi @nilanjanb. The first question to ask is why do the testers write test cases. Try to understand why the fixation with test cases, who is demanding them and why.
There are a lot of misconceptions around test cases; it’s a good idea to address them with the team and offer alternatives.
Start here: Breaking the Test Case Addiction (Part 1) « Developsense Blog
This is a great series of blog posts, don’t stop at part 1.
- Practice and get good at activity-based test management (test management centred on the testing activity ) as opposed to artifact-based test management (test management centred on test artifacts or procedures, like test cases). This way you can coach the team.
- Get in touch with people who can help and ask for their help.
- Get management on board with the idea. You will need to be able to explain to them how you’re tracking and reporting testing.
- Just do it! Don’t over-think it. Get your team on board and go with it. I will be difficult at the start, the notes will be sloppy, the reports will take long to put together but that’s only going to improve.
