Successful Testing
What does it even mean to test successfully?
Recognizing Good Testing
An inquisitive mindset over a confirmatory one
Adaptable planning over rigid plans
Deliberate testing over following a script
Attention to opportunity cost over testing everything exhaustively
Focus on the testing mission over chasing your favorite type of bug
Tell the story of your testing over relying on potentially vacuous metrics
The Secret to Successful Testing
• Have a strategy that supports your mission
• Always be ready for new discoveries
• Surround yourself with good people
• Make sure your strategy doesn’t fail
Strategy
• ”Immature strategy is the cause of grief.”
– Miyamoto Musashi
• Mindset: Intent on learning
• What – Why – How

Becoming a Super Hero Tester
• When you don't know what to do, please ask someone
• When something is not right, please speak up
• When your boss is being an idiot, please tell them (nicely)
• When you notice you won’t be able to finish what you've promised on time,
please let your stakeholders know, while there’s still time to mitigate, re-
negotiate scope, delegate or even just prepare for the effects of a delay
• Speaking up is (should) always preferable to keeping quiet
Why We Still Fail (sometimes)
• We are irrational
• Dan Ariely’s Behavioural Economics experiments
• We often react intuitively or emotion-driven
• Thinking Fast & Slow
• The Elephant & The Rider
• Drive – Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose
• Somatic marker hypothesis
• We are creatures of habit
• Change is scary, routines create a sense of security
• Change might not be fast, and it isn’t easy, but with
time and effort, almost any habit can be reframed.
Be Aware of Your Biases
• We’re all biased
• Tendencies to act in an irrational way
• Can lead to poor decision making
• Knowing them, and recognizing which
ones you yourself are most affected by,
can improve your chances of making
more rational decisions
Autonomy
PurposeMastery
Embrace Emotions
• Direct the Rider
• Motivate the Elephant
• Shape the Path
The Power of Habit
• The brain is constantly looking to
save effort
• By chunking actions into routines
(habits), the brain saves energy
• Cravings reinforce habits
• Insert new routine in the
cue/reward to change a habit
Keystone Habit
• Keystone habits start a process that, over time, changes everything
• Change one or a few key things to work as a lever
• Wrap new habits in between familiar ones to help adoption
• Small wins -> new structures -> contagious cultural change
• Test Impact as a Keystone Habit of testing
Test Impact as a Keystone Habit
• != Test Impact Analysis (TIA)1
• Why impact and not risk?
• Consider, not just code, but many
different angles and models
• Let the team use their own language
• Start small, sandwich between other
analyses already being performed

QA Fest 2018. Johan Jonasson. The Secret to Successful Testing

  • 1. The Secret to Successful Testing Johan Jonasson
  • 2. Johan Jonasson • Consultant, Speaker, Trainer & Coach • From Linköping, Sweden • Test professional since 2006 • Passionate about community building • Engaged in non-profit organizations focused on improving the testing craft
  • 3. Successful Testing What does it even mean to test successfully?
  • 4. Recognizing Good Testing An inquisitive mindset over a confirmatory one Adaptable planning over rigid plans Deliberate testing over following a script Attention to opportunity cost over testing everything exhaustively Focus on the testing mission over chasing your favorite type of bug Tell the story of your testing over relying on potentially vacuous metrics
  • 5. The Secret to Successful Testing • Have a strategy that supports your mission • Always be ready for new discoveries • Surround yourself with good people • Make sure your strategy doesn’t fail
  • 6. Strategy • ”Immature strategy is the cause of grief.” – Miyamoto Musashi • Mindset: Intent on learning • What – Why – How
  • 7. Test Strategy Product Model Information goal Risk Test idea Test idea Charters Scenarios Role-based Automated tests Etc... Impediment Information goal Task Question Assumption Need TeamTest Lead (Product Owner) Tester
  • 8. Becoming a Super Hero Tester • When you don't know what to do, please ask someone • When something is not right, please speak up • When your boss is being an idiot, please tell them (nicely) • When you notice you won’t be able to finish what you've promised on time, please let your stakeholders know, while there’s still time to mitigate, re- negotiate scope, delegate or even just prepare for the effects of a delay • Speaking up is (should) always preferable to keeping quiet
  • 9. Why We Still Fail (sometimes) • We are irrational • Dan Ariely’s Behavioural Economics experiments • We often react intuitively or emotion-driven • Thinking Fast & Slow • The Elephant & The Rider • Drive – Autonomy, Mastery, Purpose • Somatic marker hypothesis • We are creatures of habit • Change is scary, routines create a sense of security • Change might not be fast, and it isn’t easy, but with time and effort, almost any habit can be reframed.
  • 10. Be Aware of Your Biases • We’re all biased • Tendencies to act in an irrational way • Can lead to poor decision making • Knowing them, and recognizing which ones you yourself are most affected by, can improve your chances of making more rational decisions
  • 11. Autonomy PurposeMastery Embrace Emotions • Direct the Rider • Motivate the Elephant • Shape the Path
  • 12. The Power of Habit • The brain is constantly looking to save effort • By chunking actions into routines (habits), the brain saves energy • Cravings reinforce habits • Insert new routine in the cue/reward to change a habit
  • 13. Keystone Habit • Keystone habits start a process that, over time, changes everything • Change one or a few key things to work as a lever • Wrap new habits in between familiar ones to help adoption • Small wins -> new structures -> contagious cultural change • Test Impact as a Keystone Habit of testing
  • 14. Test Impact as a Keystone Habit • != Test Impact Analysis (TIA)1 • Why impact and not risk? • Consider, not just code, but many different angles and models • Let the team use their own language • Start small, sandwich between other analyses already being performed 1 The Rise of Test Impact Analysis: https://goo.gl/KKiqft Capability Reliability Usability Security Scalability Performance Installability Compatibility Supportability Testability Localizability Maintainability Portability Customers Information Developer relations Test team Equipment & tools Schedule Test items Deliverables Quality AspectsProject Aspects Heuristic Test Strategy: http://www.satisfice.com/tools/htsm.pdf
