A step-by-step guide to User Acceptance Testing. 11. Retrospective

There will always be things that could have gone better, and during this phase, it’s important to reflect on these to improve future projects. Hopefully, the project will have been a triumph. With the successful implementation, you will need to positively feedback on the project’s success to all stakeholders to encourage future UAT participation within the organisation.

Analyze and critique the project.

  • What was the level of issues found, and was it acceptable?
  • What was the level of defects found, and was it acceptable?
  • Where was time lost or gained?
  • How effective was the communication process?
  • How was the quality of the delivered results perceived?
  • Consider the level of questions and concerns after/during the UAT
  • Praise users and stakeholders where appropriate

Organize assets from the plan and results for future use

Collate assets and organize them for future use

  • Test cases
  • Test scripts
  • Automated scripts
  • Creation of automated regression
  • Data and results

Adapt test policies if necessary

Once the reflection has been completed, adapt your test policy for future UATs

  • What strategic changes would have created a better framework?

As with any testing process, not all phases need to be implemented within every project, but each should be considered to achieve the best possible outcome.

We are covering the whole approach to UAT in a step-by-step guide.  You can read the final part, Conclusion, or any of the other sections here:
