    Learning How To Test Requirements


    99 Minute Workshop


    Ask someone what a tester does and likely the answer will involve something to do with a tester interacting software. However, a tester can provide just as much value to a team before a single line of code is written by helping teams explore requirements and ideas. Enabling teams to dispel assumptions, resolve misconceptions and create a shared understanding of what we're building across team members.

    In this workshop, we'll explore how we can take our testing skills to test requirements and ideas by learning new questioning techniques and how to analyse ideas to spot opportunities to ask questions.

    Quality Coach / Senior Quality Engineer
    I’m a Quality Coach & Tester that helps orgs, teams & individuals understand the relationship between quality & testing to help them build better products & deliver more effective services. I’ve been testing since 2002 starting with video games on PS2, Xbox & PC. It may not sound like a real job but it’s the truth! By day I’m a Senior Quality Engineer at a health tech night I run Abode of Quality. Here is one of my core values: “The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude (& how you’re thinking) about the problem.” - Captain Jack Sparrow (the part in brackets was my addition though!) I believe that quality & testing problems are actually people problems in disguise! Often the cause of these problems is misaligned goals, different perspectives, low empathy for colleagues, and the list goes on. Using my coaching skills in the quality & testing space, I believe the most effective way to serve the business, is to help teams & individuals gain new perspectives about themselves & their teammates.
