Zen Test Labs helps you mitigate risks with a test consulting practice like no other

Institutionalizing testing processes requires a commitment from a large cross-section of the organization. To build lasting commitments, several building blocks of an “End to End Testing Program” need to work; linked together like a chain. The building blocks include senior management commitment, alignment of quality objectives against test plan, tools and training, test metrics and a test process improvement framework. However we at Zen Test Labs believe that any chain however, is only as strong as it weakest link!

Thus to help you mitigate this risk, we have created a test consulting practice like no other. Zen Test Labs facilitates an independent review of your testing processes and practices against best practices as well as test process improvement models. In the context of your current test process maturity and implementation rigor, we help you resolve your specific pains and tactical testing challenges. We focus on “quick hits” that yield bigger impact with minimal effort and time. In addition to this, we also lay out a roadmap which focuses on “institutionalizing” a sustained testing process improvement program, which in the mid to long term will realize significant benefits.
