An organisation providing recruitment services to a large Federal Government agency embarked on system transformation to modernise their core recruitment processes through the adoption of the latest cloud technology platforms. KJR was engaged to analyse the requirements and develop the testing artefacts collaboratively with the project team to identify critical system functionality; and to also design, then facilitate User Acceptance Testing for the programme.
As the system transformation programme progressed, the Programme Management team identified a capability gap within the programme team and that was the absence of independent software testing skills. This skill gap had resulted in an information void around the status and quality of the system being developed. The gap, if unfilled, would have meant that the newly developed system would have been first experienced by users as they started training in preparation for its subsequent rollout.
The Programme Management team filled this gap by engaging additional expertise to build testing processes to alleviate schedule impact as well as an external provider to plan and execute User Acceptance Testing (UAT).
