This weeks presentations

This week I gave two presentations. One for the IBBA annual conference, the other for the Dutch testing day.
I uploaded the presentations to Slideshare:
  • The International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) is a non-profit professional association with the purpose of supporting and promoting the discipline of business analysis. On November 26, the Dutch chapter held its annual conference. I was asked to tell about my vision on the trends in IT and how these affect the profession. As a tester, rather than a BA, I explained that roles get diffuse and business does not care who does the job, they just want a skilled proffesional. Interesting question I raise is wheter the new roles will be taken by the BA-ers or the testers? I quess the job is for whoever has the skills first….has the rat race now started?  See slides
  • On november 27 the ’Nederlandse testdag’ was held in Utrecht. Speakers where a.o. Martin Pol, Dorothy Graham, Huib Schoots. These slides represent my contribution and introduces three tips for boosting the value and visibilty of your testing  See slides
