Looking for Value in Testing and Testers with Pete Walen


How can testers add value for the team ... and for themselves. What does it actually mean, when we talk about "value" in the software testing universe? Pete Walen will gives some insights, answers and possibly more questions. Let's keep the discussion vital to see where the future role of testing and testers will lead us.

Session abstract:

Loads of experts tell us what testers do. There are extensive lists to tell us what testing is all about. They include test plans and test cases; finding bugs; to verify conformance to requirements, to tell a story and to add value.

What does any of this really mean? How can we, as testers, add value for the team, the organization or customers? What about value for ourselves? Do we, as testers, have value? Can we do better work, no matter what type of environment we are in, to improve quality and add the mysterious "value"?
