Creating an Agile Test Team Isn’t a Game—or Is It?
When it comes to our agile testing teams, the best we can hope for is to hire people with the right attitude and necessary aptitude, and then nurture their QA and testing skills. How do we accomplish such a monumental task? Several years ago, Bob Crews had an epiphany: games! He recalled his military days and the war games the Army would play, and then consulting for the Navy to teach them how to automate tests against flight simulators. History tells us games go back over 2,300 years as a tool to teach. Bob began using games, puzzles, and brainteasers to provide ongoing development of testing skills and to assess if a potential new hire has what it takes to be part of a dynamic agile testing team. Join Bob for this uber-interactive, fast-paced presentation as we play games and solve puzzles that can assist in building and developing great agile testing teams. You'll learn the value of utilizing games, puzzles, and brainteasers to educate and reinforce knowledge, to serve as an observation tool, and to benefit the hiring process.
