Definition of ready

Checked vs explored

Who are our stakeholders?

How can we test earlier?

Testers - Don't be a liability

By Ulrika Malmgren

Testers - Don't be a liability

Presentation @ Booster conference in Bergen 2016 Abstract "- You know, testers in a team can be a liability for the quality of your product. - How can you even say that? We hire testers to improve quality! Besides, aren't you a tester? - Yes, and because I know of this risk I can do a better job. - Alright, I'm intrigued... how? - Look, there are three main perspectives to keep in mind when talking about quality and by being deliberate about them you can mitigate the risk that the tester poses. I've got lots examples of techniques for each perspective and I'd love to tell you all about the perspectives and the techniques."
