It is seen as something we have to do well, and if it works no one notices, but if it doesn’t all hell breaks loose. This presentation will look at how testing can be seen as a strategic element of design and as a means to gain insight and ideas for future developments. Drawing on key learnings from complexity and cognitive sciences it will mix theory (thinking anew) with practice (acting anew) to provide insight on current approaches and insight into the future. It will examine the boundaries between automation and the need for human insight and provide new insight into the growing opportunities and issues with hybrid working. That will include new approaches to creating a scaffolding for self-organising cross silo teams within orgaisations.
