KEYNOTE: The Drive-Thru Is Not Always Faster: Re-Thinking Your Testing Practice


How many times have you sat in line at the drive-thru window waiting and waiting? You watch as some people park their car, walk inside, buy their food, and then leave…..all while you are still in line.

The drive-thru window was created to speed up the process and make things faster. However, many times that process is not as fast as a different way.

How many times have we done the same thing with testing? We focus on what we believe is the best and fastest process and we don’t allow ourselves to consider alternatives that might work just as well, or better.

You are not alone. And it would likely surprise you that many others in the testing community share the same struggles and needs for re-thinking.

In this keynote, Mike Lyles will share his findings in talking to various leaders and practitioners in testing, their struggles, their strategies to overcome them, and their creative approaches to providing alternative solutions to make their testing organizations successful.
