The MaLET Model - Maturity Levels for Exploratory Testing
Paper i proceeding, 2021

Based on multiple series of interviews and workshops, this paper presents the MaLET model - a representation of the typical evolution path for companies who successfully adopt exploratory testing. The model provides a step-by-step approach to systematically improve exploratory testing over time, and shows how and why capabilities may regress. The MaLET model was validated through a series of interviews with 20 interviewees from eight case study companies in separate industry segments. The interviews also revealed examples on improvement initiatives that had failed in the companies, showing that improvement initiatives tend to fail if they are not planned in an order corresponding to the maturity levels in the model. The MaLET model was well received by the interviewees during the validation, describing the model as sound, relevant and useful in practice.
