About the webinar

When the test activity is performed with all the factors being constant, you are expected to see the same result. This ultimately leaves you with the infamous “Pesticide Paradox” unless a varying factor is introduced which can stimulate the probability of altering the test result.

Test teams can arrest the pesticide paradox by dusting fresh perspectives on every test activity – this surely sounds expensive when seen through the lens of a Golden Triangle. However, teams can accommodate small changes to their usual test routines and gather test results which helps determine the test confidence of the application.
