Wisdom, Rules and Incentives

Great talk by Barry Schwartz about wisdom and decision making in the face of bureaucracy, rules and misplaced incentives. When I watched this I saw a lot of connections and similarities between Barry’s examples and the problems we see in software testing.

 

How do we encourage people to want to be great testers, rather than just incentivising them to do X or Y or Z?
