Risk evaluation results



Combination of business risk (denoted by a letter) and failure probability (denoted by a number). Values range between A1 (highest) to C3 (lowest) and can be displayed in a risk matrix.

For example, a requirement with medium business risk and high failure probability would have the value B1.

The higher the risk, the more important it is to include test cases that cover these requirements in regression testing. If the risk is very high (A1) due to the size of a demand, it is best practice to split it into smaller parts and repeat the Journey to Rome with each to identify where the highest risk is located.


Based on the question results in the functional complexity category. Possible values are LowMedium, and High.

For requirements with high complexity it might be a good idea to split them into smaller parts that can be implemented and tested individually. If the high complexity is due to a large number of variations, the demand might be a candidate for automated testing.

Test Intensity

Based on Risk and Complexity. Ranges from 1 (minimum test intensity) to 100 (maximum test intensity).

For example, a requirement with Risk B1 and medium complexity might have test intensity 60.

Test intensity is the key indicator for test management. It is valuable for priorisation (where to focus resources), it helps with test case design (achieve higher test coverage) and test execution planning. For example, if a delivery contains a large number of requirements with high test intensity, you need to plan more time/resources for testing.
