I’ve delegated for one of my team to trial using Exploratory testing instead of the usual test script approach for a couple of stories within the last couple of sprints. He’s really dived into it and has defined a Charter template and started running timeboxed sessions on certain areas. But the other testers in the team are less keen, they like the test case approach and are worried about how we ensure we hit all the acceptance criteria.
This is also a team where there isn’t a huge amount of automation, so there is a concern that if we do exploratory, we are going to miss more.
What tips and successes have people had when trying to bring exploratory formally into the ways of working?
