Test Process Improvement – How Hard Can It Be?
Over the last 20 years Geoff has been involved in many Test Process Improvement projects. Today the amount of change and improvement going on in testing is growing, so this is still a very important part of what we have to do. However, so many times we hear people complaining that they can’t calculate any benefits, that testers won’t change and why do I need to deliver quick wins?
This presentation looks at how to make any improvement project a success, and it does this by using some fun case study examples looking at how Geoff has seen things go wrong, and from the depth of despair we will look at how things can be made to be successful.
The title of this talk was something a very senior manager once said to Geoff, “How hard can it be write a new process, just do it and just put on peoples desks, that’s all there is to it. Take you a couple of weeks”. Geoff believed him at first, but have since learnt my lesson.
The techniques that are discussed are just as appropriate in Waterfall as they are in Agile, and DevOps.
