Why Exploratory Testing?

Exploratory testing is a skilled context driven testing approach that relies on human intuition and expertise of experienced testers to identify highly critical bugs at an early stage in the SDLC. Exploratory testing finds new ideas and guides the next best course for future test cases and test designs. Scripted testing techniques perform well within documented specifications whereas exploratory testing stretch beyond boundaries. When combined with scripted testing, exploratory testing maximizes test results to improve functionality, usability, performance, security and user experience.

Exploratory Testing Process

Exploratory testing doesn’t require well-structured documentation and suits very well for agile projects that have incremental software delivery in a short time span. The exploratory testing process is all about thinking, investigating, discovering and continued learning. Characterized by freestyle testing and lots of independent freedom, testers love to apply their mind in uncovering some of the unknown bugs that will be never caught with scripted testing processes.

Exploratory testing process

An Exploratory testing process goes through 5 stages of test preparation and is called session based testing management (SBTM).
