My third article can be found in the February 2012 issue called Facilitating a Journal Club.
The focus of this article is creating a journal club which defines strategies that a manager can implement for his department. Testers can also create a journal club to further their own professional development.
A tester needs to be mindful that skills could become stagnant and there are many ways to keep those skills sharp. One way this can be done is through reading articles and blogs. This should be an important part of a tester‘s life to ensure he is staying with current trends. Understanding how other professionals are approaching testing problems can challenge and progress skills and strategy. The following sections provide suggestions to facilitate a journal club.
If you enjoyed the intro of this article, please read the rest at Tea-time with Testers. I try to write my articles from a practical standpoint with advice for both managers and testers that you can apply immediately. If you have any questions or suggestions for articles just let me know. I would love to hear from you!
