Have you ever said…?
“I wish those ____ understood ___”
“I wish those ___ would teach me about ___”
If so, this is the workshop for you.
The goal is to help testers and developers (and others) collaborate more effectively.
This will be a true workshop:
First we’ll set the stage of what problems we are trying to solve. First, how can teams benefit from skills transfer across roles, why do we need to help make that happen? We’ll talk about potential communication barriers due to experience, competencies, background, terminology among roles, and give a couple of our own examples of ways we have addressed that type of problem.
Then we’ll work in small groups, where each group has a mix of people from different roles. Each group will identify a topic, then prepare a poster, picture, or sketch note to help explain that topic to others. We’ll share, critique, and revise.
By the end of the workshop, you’ll have had a chance to work on a topic in a group, and been exposed to the topics from other groups.
We’ll post pictures afterwards so you and others can share.
