The financial industry is notorious for its unwillingness to change. Change is often avoided unless absolutely necessary, and usually at the behest of company executives. This is the story of Gary’s journey moving from test cases to context-driven testing in a start-up financial technology company and the invitation to change that never arrived. He felt motivated to change the company’s approach and moved from a test case culture to a software testing program based on a heuristic test strategy model. This journey required planning, passion, a leap of faith, and applying other software testers advice and experiences. His team incorporated techniques and approaches learned in rapid software testing, learning many lessons through this experience. Gary will show you how to plan your own journey towards context-driven testing and how to gain confidence in enacting that change. Additionally, he will show how to combine community advice with your own experience to catalyze improvements and forward momentum. He will also share tips on how to obtain support from people who matter, and how your passion for testing can help teams embrace change.
