Discussions Testers Should No Longer Be Having

Mike Lyles

Director of QA & Project Management, Bridgetree

How many times have you heard statements like, “How did we miss this in test”, “This defect doesn’t happen on my machine”, “We do not need automation”, or “We are waiting on testing to give us the green light”?


Far too often, teams are spending a lot of time diving into discussions that they no longer need to have. This builds frustration, affects team alignment, and can potentially impact the quality and milestones of the project.


Through the years, we have seen a need for processes, tools, and old-school approaches to change. Discussions we needed to have years ago are no longer the same now. There is a need for strategic changes in how we operate within a project and how we communicate across teams.


In this talk, we will discuss many of the well-known phrases, philosophies, and theories around testing of years past, and how we must overcome the obstacles and be successful today. We will discuss how the dynamics within the teams must change, and most importantly, how you, as a tester, can influence across the organization.


Key Takeaways:

  • Evaluate previous successes in our SDLC and testing processes that now must evolve
  • Suggestions for how we can drive DIFFICULT discussions into solution focused results
  • Tips and guidelines for how to best influence across the team and organization
