I have to finalize manual and automation scenarios and give it to the client at the start of the sprint. How to finalize manual and automation scenarios in this scenario?

    Welcome. What do you mean how to finish it? Why not? What's holding you back from finishing it?

    Why vote to close after only 1 hour? Let's try to be a welcoming community and give the OP a chance to clarify before voting to close.

  • @LeeJensen meta.stackexchange.com/q/98022/248731. If you think it should be closed, vote to close it - it's not an irretrievable state, and the OP gets prompted to edit for reopening.

  • Surely this encourages new people to raise questions in near future! And by the way...just downvoting without giving a reason is not polite. This guy is new - pavelsman did the rigth way, asked him a question and giving him a chance to modify/add his question.We should do the same. Mar 31 '20 at 17:28
  • Upvoted since this hopefully can lead to an interesting discussion

Note that a test is a performance, not an artifact. One does not "delivers a test".

I can interpret your question in two ways:

1 - An estimation problem: You feel you don't have the tools and skills to understand your scope and grasp an idea of the effort necessary to do a professional job, although probably you are capable of doing the work itself.

2 - A communication problem: You don't have the skill to communicate properly with some person that matters what the results of your investigations were (aka testing).

An answer to both problems will be: It depends on your context (which we can help if you give more details).

Generally speaking, for starters, I would suggest Bob Martin "Effective Estimation (or: How not to Lie)" talk (here is a nugget of this presentation) for the problem (1) and Michael Bolton's "Breaking the Test Case Addiction" 9-part blog post series, where he talks about the problem of considering tests/testing as artifact generation and alternative ways to understand and communicate your testing (as a performance).
