Topic – Testers! Aim to Enable

Abstract

The aim of the Modern Testing Principles is to Accelerate the Achievement of Shippable Quality. For testers, this can mean a change to the way we work in order to help our team achieve this goal. Instead of focusing on carrying out skilled testing, we often need to approach this at a higher level.

I’m going to share my experiences in becoming an enabler for my team. I’ll talk through three approaches I take; visualising and improving flaws in our team’s process, identifying problems with code and design as early as possible and sharing my testing knowledge so we can build quality at source.

Top Takeaways:

  • How to work with your team to identify and improve flaws in your process
  • How to collaborate with others to identify problems early
