Timeless Skills for Modern Testers

As testers, we are challenged to champion and engineer quality in new and unique ways and to develop innovative test approaches that focus on customer value. Our ability to innovate comes from not only our technical skills, but also from our skills in communication, collaboration, and creativity.

Gerie and Peter will discuss the key skills that modern testers need to be innovative: communication, collaboration, and creativity. Using real-life examples, we will show how we can create intersections of creativity both individually and as a team.
