Worldwide Software Testing Practices Survey 2017

Following the successful release of Worldwide Software Testing Practices Report in 2015, a new survey was designed for its second edition considering the changing needs of software testing industry. The survey was designed by the ISTQB® Marketing Working Group and endorsed by ISTQB® Member boards, accredited training providers and exam providers in all over the world.

We think the survey provides useful information for all the professionals involved in the testing market. All the survey answers will be gathered and analyzed, with a report being published.
