A New Model For Testing

Reading Time: 1 minute



Paul believes that our existing models of testing are not fit for purpose – they are inconsistent, controversial, partial, proprietary and stuck in the past. They are not going to support us in the rapidly emerging technologies and approaches. The certification schemes that should represent the interests and integrity of our profession don’t, and we are left with schemes that are popular, but have low value, lower esteem and attract harsh criticism. His goal in proposing the New Model is to stimulate new thinking in this area.
