It’s the last of our deep-dive series on Modern Testing Principles. This time, we discuss the (sometimes controversial) principle number 7: We expand testing abilities and knowhow across the team; understanding that this may reduce (or eliminate) the need for a dedicated testing specialist. Not too many tangents this time. Next time, we’ll get caught up […]
On to the next principle in our deep dive series. Principle Number 6 says: We use data extensively to deeply understand customer usage and then close the gaps between product hypotheses and business impact. Note that episode 82 makes a nice listening companion.
We’re back to discuss another of the modern testing principles. We believe that the customer is the only one capable to judge and evaluate the quality of our product Discussions include a brief discussion of the Kin phone from Microsoft. Finally – if you missed it, the Modern Testing AMA recording is here.
Our dive into the Modern Testing Principles continues with a dive into principle number four: We care deeply about the quality culture of our team, and we coach, lead, and nurture the team towards a more mature quality culture.
On to Principle number 3 (full list at moderntesting.org). We are a force for continuous improvement, helping the team adapt and optimize in order to succeed, rather than providing a safety net to catch failures. As promised in the show, there will be an AMA on Modern Testing hosted by Ministry of Test on July […]
We’re back to the MT Principle Deep-Dives (which may just be medium dives). Principle #2 says: We accelerate the team, and use models like Lean Thinking and the Theory of Constraints to help identify, prioritize and mitigate bottlenecks from the system. We talk about that – but of course, there are a few tangents we […]
We are already taking an interlude from principle deep-dives to reflect a bit on the episode 81 feedback, and for Brent and Alan to have short (but in depth) discussion on how to get started creating actionable metrics. We’ll be back to Modern Testing principles in episode 83.
We don’t reiterate the Principles directly (see the Episode 77 show notes for that), we talk a lot about how we are adapting the principles slightly based on feedback and discussions with the three – and how much better the principles are for the effort. We also discover that both Brent and Alan love to cook. […]
We discuss, vet, and rewrite (and not for the last time), the Modern Testing Principles. These are a work in progress, but we’re happy to share the current final form. Listen to the podcast to hear these developed in real time. The customer is the only one suitable to judge and evaluate the quality of […]
First show of 2018, with a variety of topics that are all mostly about Modern Testing. Items of note include the State of Testing survey, podcast plans for 2018, Alan’s presentation schedule (“where is the weasel?”), and the usual amount of tangents.
