Test Automation

10 Oct Put Your People First

In the years I’ve been transforming organizations, a few requests get me worked up like a two-year old who skipped a nap.  Two of these are, “The right process will solve our people issues” and “The right tool will solve our people and process issues.” While I agree, processes and tools are important, people are our greatest assets.  To effectively transform and manage an optimal organization, one must realize the right order of importance – people first, with process and tools far behind.

Automation helps reduce that waste, and though you don't get results overnight, you’ll likely see millions of dollars of savings in the first...

My simple answer: “No, it does not.” Ok, before you get your nickers in a twist, I am not saying you should get rid of the Q/A team or ship a product that’s hanging together by dental floss. On the contrary, we should always ship a product of the highest quality. But despite that, I maintain that testing, in and of itself, isn’t value-added. Ok, so now you’re thinking that the old guy’s lost it. To understand what I mean, understand the definition of value:  something that is a product or service that the customer is willing to pay for. In the...
