The Art of Testing Transformation: Blending a change in technology and process
Technologies, testing processes, and the role of the tester have evolved significantly over the past several years. As testing professionals, it is critical that we evaluate and evolve ourselves to continue to add tangible value to our organizations. In your work, are you focused on the trivial or on real “game changers”? Jennifer Bonine describes critical elements that, like a skilled painter, help you artfully blend people, process, and technology into a masterpiece, woven together to create a synergistic relationship that adds value to your organization. Jennifer shares ideas in the areas of mastering politics, maneuvering core versus context, and innovating your technology strategies and processes. She addresses questions on how many new processes can be introduced in an organization, what the role of organizational culture is in determining the success of a project, and how can you know what tools will add value versus simply adding overhead and complexity. This discussion can lead you to technologies and processes you can stake your career on.
