Managing a software project is challenging. Managers often need to deal with overwhelming amounts of data and detail but they must also be able to see the big picture at a glance. What can testers do to help? Excellent testing involves composing, editing, narrating, and justifying a story about the product, about the testing, and about the quality of the testing. However, telling a good story doesn't just depend on the raw data; it depends on representing, organizing, and displaying information to illuminate key points, highlight trends, and show variation. Michael Bolton takes you on a tour of approaches to illustrating the testing story, designed to keep the entire project team informed of product status and testing activity, to foster discovery and productive conversation, and to help managers ask better questions and get better answers.
