Vision for QA and Testing Organizations Chandana Ranasinghe Consultant to QAI Sri Lanka
Dark vision of the future Testers are the gatekeepers responsible for assuring product quality. Testing follows a rigorously controlled process, and ad hoc testing is banned. Testers are kept separate from the developers to foster independence and objectivity. Senior testers work from extensively detailed specifications, creating plans, drawing state diagrams, and compiling test scripts from the inception of the project until coding has finished. At that point, any tester, no matter how junior, can read and follow the scripts, testing can even be entirely automated, so that management can be sure that the code is bug-free. All decisions will be based on solid numerical data. Changes to the product will be resisted so that risk can be eliminated.
Bright vision of the future Testers are active investigators, critical thinkers, and highly skilled, valued members of the project team. Testers neither accept nor desire responsibility for releasing the product; instead, testers provide important, timely, credible information to managers so that they can make sound and informed business decisions. Testers work collaboratively not only with the developers, but with the entire project community, and are able to report at any time on product and project risks. Testers have an extensive understanding of tools and automation, and decide when and when not to use them. Most importantly, testers embrace challenge and change, adapting practices and strategies thoughtfully to fit the testing mission and its context.
