Overview of Level 3

We will now look at the Specific Goals and Specific Practices in Maturity Level 3.

In the diagram below The five Process Areas in level 3 are in blue. There is a green box for each of the Process Areas that contain the Specific Goals which must be met to achieve the Process Area.

Level 3 builds on the solid foundations provided in Level 2 to build an increasingly mature and capable test process. Level 3 is looking to add to the framework by ensuring:

  • There is a conscious approach to professional test organisation and resources
  • That the organisational test framework is managed by test professionals
  • That test training is identified and made available as required
  • That testing is fully integrated with the overall delivery life cycle activities
  • Specific elements of testing are implemented.
