Communication and Testing

In yesterday’s test team meeting we did an interactive sessions around communication. Stickies, pens and a whiteboard were all we needed to have a fun session talking around communication.

We started by brainstorming what communication is. Then what factors affect communication. We talked about feedback.

And of course we talked about PAC – Purpose, Audience and Context.

(Those who’ve known me for many years might remember that PAC Testing was my very first testing blog all those years ago in 2009. It’s still running and getting traffic! The links are all wrong on it and the images are no longer there but the site is still up!

We also talked around some specific examples of communication failure. It was a fun session thrown in at the last minute. It’s always good to throw in some soft skills sessions.

By the way – I’m recruiting for testers!
