Resumen: When defining what “modern testing” means to him, Alan Page has said that testers on cross-functional teams should also be testing coaches. Lisa and her co-author Janet Gregory like to think of testers playing a “test consultant” role. Wait, yet another set of skills we have to learn to be successful testers? Not to worry. The skills that make us valuable testers let us help others on our team improve their testing skills. Testers are great at asking questions, providing quick feedback, identifying and solving problems. Lisa will explore ways to grow and apply the skills we already use to help non-testers learn to prevent bugs and build quality in. And she’ll talk about new skills we may need to learn to succeed as test consultants, and how to learn them.
- Why testers need to be test consultants, rather than do all the testing themselves
- Skills a tester needs to help others on their cross-functional team learn how to do testing activities themselves
- Ways we can learn and practice these skills
