Tailoring Your Testing Timespan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We all want to test with “brain engaged”, right?  But what engages your brain? Software testing offers a range of problems and goals of all sizes. Sometimes you can feel like the job is too small and claustrophobic, or else vast and confusing. The right size problem engages your brain at maximum capacity.

The timeframe of the goals you share with your boss, your timespan of discretion, determines how you feel. You may need tighter feedback loops and more oversight, or larger goals and more discretion. Your team may need different size goals to suit each individual’s capacity.

This session will help you discover the timespan of your testing, see if it works for you, and tailor your shared goals to find the right size ones to strive toward. With these ideas you and your team can stay “brain engaged”.
