As everyone does, we testers think too, as it is our nature. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed, or down-right prejudiced. However, the quality of things we do depends precisely on the quality of our thought. To systematically cultivate excellence in thought & for skilled application of the thinking process, we need to understand how our brain is modelled along with learning and exploring how to spot gaps in our thinking process.

In the workshop, we'll question how we naturally think; how we can unleash its full potential; the art of questioning; how to challenge assumptions; modelling the thought process based on Socratic questioning & The Phoenix Checklist; Application of design thinking & meta-cognitive skills into our thinking process; thinking tools that can help to manage them; work through some real-life scenarios that model different testing problems to evaluate our thought process and suggest approaches to solve them correctly.

What's Being Covered

After this event you should be able to do the following:

  • Outline modelling of thought process
  • Questioning the ability to think, analyse and interpret along with thinking tools that can help to manage them
  • Identify "gaps" in the thinking process and predict common critical thinking mistakes
  • Design own thinking framework to approach any testing challenges thoughtfully
