About the presentation

Presentation: Pitfalls and benefits of Return on Investment


Fast delivery and release are key points in Agile and we, from QA side, can support it with accurate and managed testing, and with automation of course.

The teams try to create as many automated tests as they can (in any test layers), the manual QAs thrive to create the manual tests that can be later automated as well. For these later steps we usually calculate the Return On Investment (ROI) to identify the best scenarios to automate and maximize our efficiency.

It is wonderful, but there is a great pitfall behind these actions that must be addressed, if we want to have proper results!

In this presentation Gergely will show the audience what ROI is and what factors do we need to keep in mind to make it as accurate as it is possible.
