Essentials: Communication and Reporting 101


Learn how to communicate and promote your testing to your team in this one day interactive workshop

One Day

Max 30 attendees


communication, testing-notes

By the end of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Describe different forms of communication and why communication is important
  • Discuss the challenges surrounding communication and how to overcome them
  • Apply communication techniques to support your testing
  • Contrast different note taking styles and determine the right one for you
  • Explain your testing activities and what you have learnt during testing


As testers, it's our job to not only learn about our products and projects but share that information with others to allow them to make informed decisions. However, communication and reporting techniques are skills that testers often forget to practise and improve. Sometimes a tester needs to ask themselves what’s the best way to communicate with a team, what style of note-taking works best for them and how do they report information clearly in a timely manner.
