Testing Templates and a Viking Warrior?

Generic templates development is a complex activity. It seems simple though: You start with the template that you always use, you pick a standard template from the internet or ask your colleagues if they have some lying around.  But then it starts to become difficult. Enough examples, an abundance of choices, but what is best for the organization. I have seen many template discussions getting adrift. The templates that were created in the end were not at all satisfactory.

Read G(r)ood testing 14 to learn how Testing Templates and a viking warrior are related. Together with Valori Colleague Egbert Bouman and I visited the Trondheim Test Conference, and the statue of the viking warrior helped me to remember a solution for the template discussion.
