Agile Testing Days -Trends and future in testing 2017

Today I gave a presentation at the Agile Testing Days. The room was packed and we talked about the way the testing profession in evolving.

5 years ago the Dutch Test Association published a book that described the changes in the testing profession. I was one of the 7 authors and we organized a few workshops on the theme. Last may we hosted a retrospective workshop during which the participants evaluated the 2012 predictions. Key question during this workshop was: What is the status of the profession and what skills and role should a tester take in order to add value and a job.

In my 2017 ATD presentation I shared the results that of this workshop.  I shared the highlights of the book, told what predictions were correct and which were incorrect. But most of all I will shared the opinion of or fellow testers: What do roles do they have now, and what roles do they expect to have in 5 years from now.

Below you find the slides:
