יום ראשון, יוני 7, 2009

I have seen many answers to this question, all talking about matrixes, what should I test, How should I test etc. Not many answers to this question talked about the overall process of development, the bigger picture… The testing process is part of much bigger picture of development that involves the developers, testers, managers, stockholders, marketing and more. Lets start with what stops the development in general, that will be the time to market of course, no product no matter how good it is will worth anything if it wont be sold. When we come to manage a project we slice the time...

How To Manage A Project When Politics Involved

יום חמישי, יוני 4, 2009

There where times when I believed that managing a good project involves only pure professionalism, but with time I found out that a good project manager should also have high social skills as well in order to be a good project manager or in that case a good manager in general. Lets say that you need to deliver a project but the expected result varies depends on the stakeholder you ask, what would you do than?

Bugs Life – How To Manage Bugs Part 1

יום שלישי, אפריל 28, 2009

I have recently posted about bugs in: Are All Bugs Should Be Fixed? there I promised to post about how to manage bugs. How to manage bugs is a little boring subject so I will try to explain it in a different way. I will quote from a bug’s diary in the “Bugs Life” posts so we can understand what happens from a “bug’s perspective”, I will add my own explanations to it so we can understand the process. I hope you will like it, lets start… This diary has been written in what our bug describes as “Jail” which is what we...

What Is A Good Time Frame For A Task?

The answer is 2 – 5 days! I am working with a lot of project managers and team leaders and when they show me there project plans I see tasks that are half a day, a day and many times I see tasks that are more than a week. I like to clarify a few points before I continue: When talking about tasks I talk about any type of task, for example tasks for testers, programmers, IT etc. There are tasks that are estimated to more than 5 days, these are high level tasks that will be divided later to smaller tasks. It...
