Test Automation – Building Your Business Case

I presented “Test Automation – Building Your Business Case” to VANQ.org, the Vancouver Software Quality Assurance User Group. Subsequently I presented it to the Southern Idaho Society for Software Quality Assurance and UBC Continuing Studies (Tech.UBC.ca), and I wanted to share that material with you.


Many teams try to add automation to their projects only to end up frustrated, and annoyed. After one or two failed attempts, they often give up or no longer have the management support to keep trying. To help increase the chance for success, the approach to automation must be from a realistic perspective with a keen awareness that automating testing effectively is not easy.

We will discuss using the exercise of a creating business case as sanity check on where it is most effective to employ automated testing, a “tool assisted” test approach, or stick with manual testing.
