Test Maturity Matrix tool
To support the assessment or audit on the current situation of testing a TPI-tool is available. This tool not only provides insight in strong or weaker points, it also provides improvement areas and activities. Furthermore the tool supports decision making when it comes to the planning of the improvement road map: what to do first as the highest priority, what follows next, what are the dependencies?
The tool comes in different flavors, depending on the situation and environment at hand. The TPI NEXT tool also comes in different languages: Dutch, English, French, German, Spanish and Chinese (provided by Mrs. Dongmei Li and Mrs. Yuyang Liu from Neusoft, China) and Japanese (provided by Mr. Tsuyoshi Yumoto and Kazuo Yabuta). Guide lines and white papers are also available.
