#1 – Communication
• Most important so, skill, not only for so,ware testers
• Tester must communicate with different stakeholders, spread over
different loca;ons

the audience
➡ Prac;ce talking in front of people (team level, meetup or
conferences)
#2 - Organized & Result Driven
#2 – Organized & Result Driven
• Testers usually test on various levels on different pla@orms. An
organized workflow helps to not miss out important things
• Document as lean as possible your work, other might follow
• Always keep the common goal in mind and work towards this goal
➡ Recommenda;on: GeJng Things Done Training
#3- Problem Solving
#3 – Problem Solving
• Iden;fied issues should be collected and not blindly passed over to
the developers
• Compare the findings against the product requirements and the user
expecta;ons
• Try to find a solu;on or at least an idea for the solu;on and provide
this informa;on to the product manager and or developers in the
team
➡ Problem solving skills will help to fix poten;al issues faster
#4 - Adaptability
#4 – Adaptability
• The tech industry is constantly changing with new requirements, new
frameworks and new trends
• Keep up the pace with the industry & projects to learn new tes;ng
techniques based on the product and technology used
• Improve missing tech skills and keep adaptable for new projects to
come
➡ Never seTle
#5- Sixth Sense
#5 – Sixth Sense
• So,ware testers should use skills from previous projects to look
proac;vely at the current project to improve things
• Help the team in any kind of obstacle that comes around the corner,
being it process, tooling or product related problems
• Use the broad knowledge to communicate this early in the process or
project to stakeholders and make poten;al issues transparent
➡ Communica;on skills are key here
And there is much more to learn & to improve
Thank You!
