Work Smarter – Test Less
We are fortunate to work in an age of constant innovation. This is particularly true of the software industry. Not only are the boundaries of what we test constantly changing, but the tools and methodologies that we use are likely to be updated regularly. The types of testing we do now are so diverse, and the required skillsets are often complex. There is a real need to constantly upskill which is fantastic in theory, but as we know the reality can be far from ideal. We are restricted by our day to day schedules, and it can be near impossible to squeeze in the required training and preparation for future projects.
In my experience, there is rarely enough time and resources allocated to innovation and upskilling for future development cycles. As testers, we need to find ways of working smarter and effectively doing more with less time. This can seem like an uphill battle, and if not approached correctly can cause a damaging and negative impact for you and your team.
