Surviving as a Tester, Even in Difficult Circumstances
Most test professionals have worked at some time or other in difficult organizations, dysfunctional cultures, and for unreasonable managers and stakeholders. This causes much internal stress and creates fear instead of creativity. While some fortunate testers work in fantastic and supportive organizations, Rice’s research with many testers indicate most of the problems in testing are “people problems.”
In this webinar, Randy will describe the most common organizational issues that affect testers and will give some tips and strategies on how to survive through them. He will also discuss the difficult issue of knowing when to move on to a new organization, as well as how to map your own career growth.
