The Wanking Schedule of Processes


I always miss a beat when I see a process diagram of testing. Especially when the diagram has first been created, and after that ought to be implemented.

This should now be implemented.

No can do. Often, the diagram has been created through thinking that is estranged from  reality, or from the restrictions of the testing tool bought for the testing. The priming of the working methods for testing happens dangerously often via the top-down method.

I scripted a more functional way.

  1. Choose a project
  2. Form a hypothesis, with the project in question, of better working methods
  3. Perform a short test. Prove the theory in practice.
  4. If it works, add it to other projects as well.
  5. If it does not work, tune it and re-test it.

Bottom-up model works better almost all the time, and the gang is also participating in the changes.

Wanking is always better, when you roll up your sleeves and start working. Visualizing is just a modest replacement.
