Every organization, every system and every project is different, so every test project requires a unique approach. Situational testing offers various forms of testing and allows you to complete your testing projects flexibly, at the lowest possible cost and in the shortest possible time.
Among the forms of testing recognized within Situational testing are factory based testing, global scripting, session based testing, bug hunts, test tours and free style exploratory testing. Testers choose one or more of these test forms, depending on the organization, project and system. This way, Situational testing encourages you to approach testing in a flexible, structured and pragmatic fashion. With Situational testing you achieve better results than using a single specific approach.
