K03: A Testing Business meets the Business of Testing - CLOSED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Testers and businesspeople rarely interact until a business limitation emerges that affects testing. Likewise, testing could find vulnerabilities that affect the course of the business.  Either way, Pradeep and Jon think there's some lessons in exploring this relationship.

In this authentic role play based on each of their years of experience with managing testing services companies, they'll walk you through 5 aspects of a burgeoning context-driven relationship. A client who wants testing will meet the leader of a testing service company, eager to show how it is different than the rest.  Their aim is to frame real scenarios that could lead to revelations about context-driven thinking.

Part 1: "The Intro" -- a conversation on values and mission
Part 2: "The Handshake" -- an agreement on principles and tactics
Part 3: "The Results" -- delivery and scrutiny
Part 4: "The Follow-Up" -- making adjustments to improve value
Part 5: "Now What?" -- testing the relationship

Much like jazz musicians jamming on stage, the conversations between Jon and Pradeep will not be scripted, but in recreating these “conversational conditions”, their hope is that it will enable you to discover the same kinds of epiphanies of context-driven thinking that come from real-time exchanges.
