What's in a Strategic Testing Roadmap? Blueprint
A strategic testing roadmap Blueprint is the culmination of research and the basis of a great OKR-style action plan for a testing program. The boxes are insights that come from triangulated research data (quantitative and qualitative). Some boxes are strategic, and some are tactical, but overall, it's a punch list. The 'Key Results' part of the OKR.
The objective part is framed as a powerful 'how might we...' question. And this question isn't determined ahead of research, it comes from the research itself, after coding among the insights and finding problem or opportunities patterns. The specific KPIs aren't important, but now you can make the goal SMART. You go through the punch list of insights and watch the needle move on those goal-associated KPIs.
- Create a research-based strategic roadmap for a testing program.
