Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.
The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Exploratory testing specific requirements:
STEP 1: Get your bearings
- The latest quick edition of the Exploratory testing Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.
Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…
- Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation
Then find your goals…
STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 820 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Exploratory testing improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 820 standard requirements:
- Design, execute, and learn. As a testing approach, exploratory testing is enormously powerful and widely practiced. Yet, it is poorly understood. Every tester can do it, but is it done well?
- What types of functional tests are performed on the software during its development (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?
- Are Acceptance Tests specified by the customer and analyst to test that the overall system is functioning as required (Do developers build the right system?
- What types of functional tests are/were performed on the software during its development (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, integrated testing)?
- More Devices, More Testing: Technological advancement brings with it more variations of technology to test. How will we test more in less time?
- What types of functional tests are/were performed on the software (e.g., spot checking, component-level testing, security testing, integrated testing)?
- Conformance testing (aka correctness or functional testing) -does the observed behavior of the software conform to its specification (SRS)?
- Are the error diagnostics, such as error messages, straightforward, or does the user need a PhD in computer science to comprehend them?
- Since the goal of testing is to find errors, why not make the completion criterion the detection of some predefined number of errors?
- Does the policy sets testing expectations for entity-wide continuity functions, business lines, support functions, and crisis management?
Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:
- The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Exploratory testing book in PDF containing 820 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in…

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy
The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Exploratory testing projects with the 62 implementation resources:
- 62 step-by-step Exploratory testing Project Management Form Templates covering over 6000 Exploratory testing project requirements and success criteria:
Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:
- Scope Management Plan: Quality Standards – Are controls in place to ensure that the work was not only completed but also completed to meet specific standards?
- Decision Log: Do strategies and tactics aimed at less than full control reduce the costs of management or simply shift the cost burden?
- Quality Metrics: What can manufacturing professionals do to ensure quality is seen as an integral part of the entire product lifecycle?
- WBS Dictionary: Are retroactive changes to direct costs and indirect costs prohibited except for the correction of errors and routine accounting adjustments?
- Human Resource Management Plan: Is the Exploratory testing project schedule available for all Exploratory testing project team members to review?
- Team Performance Assessment: To what degree does the teams work approach provide opportunity for members to engage in open interaction?
- Project Charter: Pop Quiz – Which are the same inputs as in the Exploratory testing project Charter?
- Procurement Management Plan: Is there a formal process for updating the Exploratory testing project baseline?
- Source Selection Criteria: Do you discuss all weaknesses, significant weaknesses, and deficiencies?
- Scope Management Plan: Is PERT / Critical Path or equivalent methodology being used?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Exploratory testing projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
- Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
- Integrate recent advances in Exploratory testing and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines
Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.
Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, ‘What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?’
This Toolkit empowers people to do just that – whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc… – they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Exploratory testing investments work better.
This Exploratory testing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
