Past Presentations

You can find an extensive list of presentations and courses that I've taught, including the slides and speaker notes for many of them, here.

Coming up—let's meet!

Check out my schedule, and drop me a line if you'd like to get together when things change and I'm in your part of the world—or if you'd like to meet and chat online. If you'd like me to work with you and it doesn't look like I'm available, remember that my clients' schedules are subject to change, so mine is too. Finally, note that some conferences offer discounts—and even if they don't advertise it, maybe we can work something out.

Rapid Software Testing

Consulting Services

I help people to solve testing problems they didn't know they can solve—and I teach them how to do that for themselves.

Are there problems that threaten the value of the product?

Is the product you've got the product you want?

Are there problems that threaten the on-time, successful completion of the project?

If there are problems, isn't it better to know about them now than to find out later?

I can help you and your organization to get better at answering these questions.

Nobody likes to hear about problems. But if there are problems in your product, you want to know about them right away so you can decide to fix the big ones or live with the ones that don't matter so much.

You're developing in some context—Agile, DevOps, Lean, Scrum, or something more traditional. The product you're making is complex, with loads of potential value and lots of potential risk. Yet most approaches to testing seem to be aimed at hiding the risk.
