My Marick Test Matrix

I introduced the Marick Test Matrix in the previous post. As much as I like it and have come to rely on it. One thing has always bugged me about the matrix: The terms Brian used to describe his horizontal axis seem, IMHO, obtuse. Instead, I prefer these simpler terms:

  • Support Programming = Define Requirements
  • Critique Product = Identify Defects

Given those changes, here’s my updated matrix:

I prefer these axes because now I can refer to each quadrant by a simple name:

  • Business/Requirements
  • Business/Defects
  • Technology/Requirements
  • Technology/Defects
