A Testers Guide To the Galaxy

A Testers Guide To the Galaxy

Who am I to write this blog?

I've been in the testing game for app. 12 years now and in the agile game for more then 14 years, started out as a part time tester in internal test projects, moved on to a role as full time tester doing automation, took my ISEB foundation, moved on the consulting world, now as test coordinator, became part of an agile project, added certified SCRUM Master to my CV, got my ISTQB ATM exam, moved on to role as Test Manager. Recently I have moved more and more into the agile game, adding CAT Certified Agile Tester, ISTQB CTFL Agile Tester Extension and SAFe Agilist to the list of certifications. So now I act more as a trainer (CAT, ISTQB CTFL & CTFL AT) and agile coach!

I simply want to share my thoughts on agile and testing and all thats connected with it.
Feel free to comment on my thoughts!

First impressions on RQM 3.0.1

ToolsPosted by Søren Wassard Tue, September 27, 2011 11:40:10
IBM launched RQM a couple of years ago.
The basic thought was to create a new test management tool that was based on the IEEE 829 testplan. And I think they succeeded.
Having worked with the previous version, 2.x I must admit it didn't always act as I hoped, but the newest GA version is really good.
Just the fact that here a testplan is in fact a fullblown testplan, and not just a collection of test cases, is eminent.
You don't need Word or another tool to add test plans and strategy into - you've got everything in one place!
I've helped implementing the tool at a couple of customers sites, and they really like it, find that the tool is easy to use, and gives you a good overview of what needs to done, and where you currently are in your test project.
I still need to test the integration with RFT, but that'll be the next step.
