I believe that the evolving role of a tester is to advocate for and encourage the right testing to be done rather than performing the testing activity.
As a result of this belief I have embarked on a journey, from being a dedicated tester on a scrum team to a test coach advocating for quality and influencing test practices across an entire organisation.
In this session i’ll discuss the emotions, obstacles, successes and learning that I experienced during my journey so far. I’ll also talk through the results of my efforts and provide advice for anyone looking to follow me on this journey.
