F11-701: Purpose Driven Testing

Track: Leadership Perspectives for Testers

Often testing becomes an isolated exercise focused on tools, metrics, and execution. This session explores the importance of creating a connection between the tester and the end user. By building a connection to the end users of a system, testers feel a greater sense of purpose in their role. The potential benefits in both testing effectiveness and morale will be explored. Methods to create a sense of purpose will also be explored, including ideas for team events and building a high energy culture in the testing team.
