How To Develop A Reliable Test Effort Estimation

Reading Time: 1 minute



Key points:

  • Even with little or almost no information available, it is possible to define a global estimate. By asking and answering a few questions, your estimate becomes more accurate.
  • The “average” project is a myth! There are always differences that influence the required test effort. Learn how to create an approach for effort estimation that you can tune and that is reliable, defendable and negotiable.
  • It’s better to be honest than to admit you did not tell the whole truth at the start. It’s essential for any estimate!
