Capture charter velocity

When I'm managing session-based exploratory testing, I spend a lot of time measuring charter velocity. There are a couple of key dynamics I look at:

  • charters executed per day

  • new charters created per day (broken down by charter priority level)

I typically capture these by tester, but I often look at them as a team aggregate. While I'm interested in individual trends for coaching, for a team of more than two testers, it's more interesting from a team perspective when it comes to creating trendlines. I show an example of how I use these numbers in a recent SSQ article.
