    1. Defining the scope of automation

    Defining the scope of automation, when to end the automation, when to start the next one, how big or small the functionality should be, it is stiff realization. By asking the right questions, feasibility studies, comprehensive research, simple but effective interviews, meetings and questionnaires from the beginning, we draw a clear understanding of the scope of the project:

    • What degree of test automation coverage do you need?
    • What are the client’s priorities?
    • Does every function in the application, need a corresponding test?
    • Does every application need a full end to end automation suite?
    • Do we need just to automate the core functionality?

    These questions help us to create a clear image of the scope of automation and how far we need to go to cover the functions.

    1. Understanding client needs and expectations

    Sometimes the expectations of End-Users can totally vary from the developers, so understanding client feedback can often be one of the most essential things an application developer can do. Testers can also learn a great deal from this client feedback, and thus build better scripts to map actual user interactions with greater precision.

    1. Clear communication between all stakeholders

    Have a clear communication between all stakeholders involved to discuss the important details about the project is essential. All communication must be documented and easily to find at the time of discussion.
