Testers self-defence

Do you recognize the following situations?

  • As a tester you are not taken seriously and seen as the tricky louse that delays the project / team
  • You are seen as a tester as the quality gate at the end of the sprint and suggestions for improvements at an earlier moment are ignored
  • Everyone has an opinion about testing and thinks they know it
  • You have some good ideas, but others find it nonsense or even prohibit you from doing your job the way you want

In the workshop you learn to recognize people and their (reasons for) behavior. You will also learn how you can take people into a change based on a number of change principles and adjust the behavior of people in the desired direction. You also learn how you can prove your value as a tester in a team or organization using those principles.

Setup of the workshop

Our experienced trainers teach you to deal with challenges in human behavior in a practical way to get people and a team to change in a natural way. The training courses are hands-on and we use experiential learning. In our training you learn under realistic pressure, in real situations. Experiential learning means that you participate in simulations instead of sitting still and watching a slideshow. A thorough debrief of what happened during the exercises is an essential part of the training. During the debriefs you learn from the teacher, the other participants but especially from yourself.
