In most games, there are levels of gamers –from novice to expert. How can you name level of testers in your team?
You can have multiple levels at the same time. I can see there are twenty levels of testers.
Level one: “Which tool you are using in testing?”
Level two: “10 pass, 2 fail”
Level three: Hey I am certified, hurray!
Level four: humm, what is exploratory?
Level five: I don’t know, but there is something wrong in this module.
Level six: “10 fail, 3 pass “
Level seven: “I started blogging “
Level eight: Marketing guys are now taking your advice seriously.
Level nine: developers now understand what testability is.
Level ten: developers actually implemented testability in application code.
Level eleven: “humm, Exploratory seems an interesting concept. I liked it.”
Level twelve: your organization left “six sigma” things because of you
Level thirteen: “ Hey, you know I was doing exploratory testing all the time.”
Level fourteen: Don’t buy this tool. I have other good option for us.
Level fifth teen: Here’s my testing budget: 9 M, “WAIT, WHAT? IT’S TOO MUCH!!” okay here is another option, let’s go for 5 M “HEY, THAT SEEMS TOO LESS.” Okay, lets chose plan no 3 which is for 7 M.
Level sixteen: now your one liner bug report can change whole website overnight. (I did that once for Mahindra satyam :))
Level seventeen: Handled Mac first time, and game crashed.
Level eighteen: networked with thousands of testers around the globe
Level nineteen: leading tribe of likeminded testers all over the world
Level twenty: Re-inventing testing which move software industry forward.
Which levels you posses ?
