Introduction to User Acceptance Testing – 5424

This workshop discusses what UAT is and more importantly what it isn’t. It explains why UAT testing isn’t the poor relation of testing and how to avoid the mad panic at the end of projects to get user sign off.

It includes mini-exercises to stimulate the audience to think about how they test and to question what they know.

It looks at what makes a good UAT tester and how UAT fits into the wider development and testing lifecycle and the values of planning and executing UAT as early as the requirements stage.

The workshop explains the need for working with the business and what the makeup of a good UAT team should look like and the individual skills required. It also looks at the different ways of executing testing, how to deal with defects and finally how to report on UAT progress.

The session is designed to be fun and inclusive using several practical examples and encourages participation from the audience
