F11-801: Walk in My Shoes

Track: Leadership Perspectives for Testers

We will follow a project, role playing a QA person and a tester dealing with problematic scenarios each of us has experienced. Going through the scenarios, we will walk through the different ideas and approaches people in these different roles may have. We will invite the audience to contribute their experiences and encourage discussion of what did and did not work in a given situation.

Example scenarios might be:

  • Stake holder has actually rejected the solution but it is going ahead due to lack of communication.
  • Requirements were given to Test and Dev without having actually been approved as this got things moving.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience and share a range of different perspectives and approaches to solving project issues. We anticipate lively discussion as discussion reveals the variety of different ways participants have dealt with scenarios that are familiar to all. Our aim is to inspire participants to see differing points of view as well as approaches that will better equip them to deal with issues that can arise on a project.
