6.3 Reacting to Test Results

Based on insights gained during progress tracking, test managers may have to initiate specific and appropriate correction measures. For example, if test execution is behind schedule, it needs to be determined how many test cases and which testers are affected. From this a test manager can deduce whether or not tests can be shifted to other testers. If work shifting is not enough, sufficient resources must be provided.

The actual demand on resources can be proven by the data and thus can be explained to management. If neither work shifting nor redistribution are possible, rescheduling of the test cases, new prioritization, or even cancellation of the tests is inevitable.

In any case, it is important to ascertain traceability of and the reasons for changes in the plan in order to learn from these situations through subsequent analysis—for instance, in project reviews or metrics-based evaluations—and to improve planning accuracy in subsequent projects.
