Why Testing? I enjoy the interaction with all the Stakeholders

My friend Rob – the Social Tester – came up with another idea for an ebook (Really! How does this guy come up with such cool ideas all the time – this is me jealous of Rob!).

Rob is asking testers to write up post it notes with why they like testing and send them to him.

So last night I spent about 45 minutes contemplating this question, and when I didn’t come up with anything useful I just went to see re-runs of Tourchwood…

But this morning I had one of those EUREKA moments, and all of a sudden every became clear once more.

enjoy_testingI enjoy the interaction with all the project stakeholders, from customers and product owners and all the way to developers and project managers.  I like the fact that my job is to work real close with all of them and serve as a bridge that allows the project to get done correctly.

I also enjoy the hunt, and the adrenaline of the projects, etc.  But specifically about testing it is the pivotal role within the organization.

This means I can send my picture to Rob.  Now it’s your turn to think about it, write it down and send the picture to Rob too.

    Hi Joel,

    Awesome stuff. Thanks for the sticky. I must admit I also enjoy the interaction with customers. One thing I missed off my sticky note.
