In this recording of a webinar I participated in on January 28th 2015, Janet Gregory who is one of the track authors and has written the immensely popular Agile Testing with Lisa Crispin and now More Agile Testing again with Lisa Crispin, tells us about the criteria for achieving Expert Status in Agile Testing.
It’s quite a jump from taking a course and we learn that demonstrated experience over a number of years is key. No exams here we emphatically say.
We also talk about the new book, More Agile Testing, and I pose some questions as well. Janet and Lisa bring up Organisational culture early in the book and I commend them for this rather than assuming that it takes place. I also liked the balanced reporting of views of the testing quadrants. It’s mental model that has been in some quarters taken down in an unkind manner. They report on the better variations and tell us not to take a ‘cookie cutter’ approach to its application.
We also had other panelists involved bringing in their expert views. Thanks to Aldo Rall, Devin Hedge and Agile Bill Krebs. Elinor Slomba once again handled the facilitation brilliantly over a difficult medium at times.
