Independent Review of Testing Capability

I’m looking for an organisation to carry out an assessment of testing capability, especially our processes, engagement with other capabilities involved in the SDLC, approach to test automation, etc. As outcome I would be looking for areas for improvement and recommendations (both quick wins and strategic).

I’m already looking at one company, but I’d like a couple more on my shortlist in order to compare service on offer, timeframe and quite importantly, cost.

You want to look at a number of consultants I gather? There are dozens out there. Right this minute, I am seeing

but there are many other recommended folk. Not advertising for Richard, if you scan around, for a list of speakers and MOT trainers which you can get if you sign up to MOT Pro, you will pick up other recommendations.

Hello,
Please provide your specifications so we will try to provide and suggest suitable tools and cost.

Thank you

Thanks for your feedback, but I am not looking for a tool.

Hi, please let Mel now what you looking for. I’m able to assist you.

Just want to correct things, having a consultant come and evaluate and fix things is not a silver bullet, it’s a journey that will involve culture change. Signing up to MOT PRO membership for example is part of that longer process I guess, but right now, a list of people who you might reach out to will really depend on what country you are in. Which country is kinda key if you are after what you say on account travel is quite restricted.

Hello Goke,

Thank you for your email regarding your requirement, kindly provide me with the email address to send the documents to?

Thanks. Your information has been really helpful.

For additional context, it’s a UK based business and I’d prefer to look locally for consultants. In an IT headcount of almost 200 I am the only test management professional and one of three experienced testers. I realise that it’s not a silver bullet, but I hope that sensible, independent, assessment-based recommendations will equip me with additional justification for initiating the cultural change you mentioned.

Hi
Thanks for helping me understand. Having said that I’d prefer some initial information about yourself and your organisation. Perhaps a website which includes services and case studies or testimonials. That will also provide me with contact details, if I wish to proceed.
