Anyone can do testing, but only good and motivated testers can do good testing.
Anyone can do testing, but only good and motivated testers can do good testing. The mindset of a tester is different than that of anyone else in a software development team, and so are their motivating factors. There are special difficulties to confront in our undervalued field that we must be aware of if we want to keep the motivation of our testers high. In order to help them grow, we must take proper care.
I started as a tester, I’ve lead testers and now, I am leading test leaders. I want to share my experiences and the lessons I and my fellow team leaders have learned during these years, to give you food for thought regarding the way you lead and take care of your testers, so they can grow and be more happy, motivated, realized, and do better testing.
