people management Questions

I am on a team of two working on standardizing testing for the company. The culture here is very resistant to change, as I am sure many colleagues on here have experienced themselves. I want to continue pushing this elephant up the stairs, but I am afraid some of these templates (IEEE 829 standard templates) are too dense for most of them. My mentality right now is to take this in strides. I want to avoid creating a 12 part test plan that people need to follow if they are just going to get defensive and say they do not have the time to even test, or test this way. Of course we have plans to educate as much as we can, but this is going to take years. What are your suggestions, then, with creating templates? Right now I have identified three that need to be used across all teams (Test Strategy, Test Plan, and Test Summary). We have plans on creating a best practice document/resource for teams to educate them on the industry standards.

In the company where I work there are 3 products: software, application and site - each with a different QA process. The question is how would you suggest integrating the QA process in different scenarios? Because there are tasks in which the QA man checks the task and there are those who "created" the task and checked whether it was indeed done at his request.  

I look forward to your comments on this subject.  

Thanks!

A trend is observed in the IT industry, that the relative weight of testing is dramatically increasing; why?

Did you ever think about taking master degree to support your career in software quality assurance? If you did, then what is the course, and why you think it would help you?

The Zephyr Api: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.thed.zephyr.zapi/cloud/installation

Power BI: https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/

Has anyone managed to actually integrate the api into Power BI? and if so how did you do it? The jira rest-api has been integrated but vital information based on test cycles is all missing.

 

Is there a free alternative to ZAPI to expose that data as well?

 

Thank you!

Hello!

I have been a test manager for a small IT company for a few years, with a team manual testers. I am also from a manual testing background. My company has just hired our first automation tester, however I need to be able to communicate with him about his work in order to effectively manage expectations for both him and the business.

Where do I begin with this? What can I learn to help him and myself?

Many thanks!
