I'm trying to figure out the best way to collect information, analyse and evaluate/assess a project's current Testing process, currently being developed by a team. After I do that, I compare the project's current testing practices with CMMI-DEV, IEEE 829, and possibly other mature models. Then I try to improve on the testing process.
How do I approach the project's current testing process? What is the relevant information I should seek/collect? Should I do surveys (what do I ask to the team)? How do I evaluate the project's testing process efficiency? How do I approach the CMMI-DEV's Verification & Validation PAs with the information I've collected?
