Writing Test Cases Manually Is Faster Than Modeling… Huh?
Over the years I have been wondering why folks involved in testing are not more eager to adopt practices that we have shown numerous times to be superior to current practices. Let’s face it, making sure that all the interesting scenarios and corner cases have properly, effectively, and efficiently been tested is not an easy…

Creating a system model – a model that directly describes the intended system behavior – is “easier” than creating tester models – models that describe the testing strategies themselves. This position has been demonstrated both within practical and theoretical frameworks. This correlates well with day-to-day observations of test managers: defining, designing, and expressing testing strategies…

Because this raised quite a lot of interest in the conference, I wanted to write a short blog post about the subject. (more…)
