Exploratory testing in a regulated environment is not possible! ... or is it?
We want to find a solution for exploratory testing in regulated environments and we would like to pass on our experiences to others and perhaps we can also pave their ways a little.
We, Maria and Florian, have been working with collaborative and exploratory testing methods for a long time. Since we both now work for ZEISS Digital Innovation, we arrived directly in regulated environments (medical technology). When we wanted to bring our positive experience with exploratory testing into this environment, the resistance from our client was very strong: "Exploratory testing is impossible in a regulated environment: the requirements for testing and quality assurance are too high." This resistance motivated us to dive deeper into this topic to find a solution for how to use exploratory testing in regulated environments. We would like to pass on our experiences to others and perhaps we can also pave their ways a little.
