Teaser – A Guidebook to Leading Testing

While my first book was on the more advanced topic of visual test strategies my next book will be an entry-level guide to people moving into test management and test leadership roles – primarily for all those without a background in testing. But also for testers moving into leadership, as Meg below.

@cactusflamingo asks: Folks who moved into test leadership roles – what do you wish you could go back and tell yourself before you started?

I have been playing with the idea of it being a guidebook to these destinations:

  • The Sea of Testing Know-How
  • The Community Deep
  • The Pearly Personalities
  • The Leadership Lands
  • Management meadows
  • Shallow Shores
  • Project roadways
  • Transition highways
  • Agile release trains
  • Artifact wetlands
  • Document pitfalls
  • The Certification Wastelands
  • Rivers of Tenacity
  • And the various tool towns scattered across the land

Which parts of the testing world would you need a guidebook for? Let’s see how it goes – the voice and style will more likely be similar to the first. Currently, the introduction starts with the following verse

Once upon a time, 
our protagonist set out on a quest to lead a testing activity.
While they searched and searched across the world,
they found no clear map to guide their quest.
And there, my friend, is where this story begins.
