owever, how do we measure satisfaction and delight? What do these things even mean and how do they behave? More concretely, how can we know how customers will feel towards a given set of features? Fortunately, there is a pretty popular model for doing just that: the Kano Model. In this article, I’ll share with you a practical approach on how to conduct a Kano study with remote users (the ones we have on most web and mobile applications.)

Some of the most difficult roles to integrate in Agile and Lean development are business analysts and user experience (UX) professionals. Transitioning from big upfront design and massive requirements documents to a minimum viable product and just in time design is difficult to understand and implement successfully. #businessanalysis   #UX

TestOps is the reclusive member of the DevOps family. Reports of sightings have been few and far between. Although we have heard stories, most of us don’t know anyone who’s actually seen it in the wild. #DevOps   #softwaretesting

Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is an approach used in software quality to identify the root causes of bugs or issues and address them instead of treating the symptoms. In this article, Mush Honda explains that RCA can be applied to end user feedback as well as software defects during software testing and provides some tips on how to apply RCA. #softwarequality   #softwaredevelopment

While micro-services are all the rage, they need to be approached with caution. Using the techniques of evolutionary architecture, coupled with continuous delivery, allows for the micro-services architecture and its companion data architecture to evolve. This talk explores the relationship between these three concepts, focusing on how they all support each other in the creation of complex systems. #softwaredevelopment  #softwarearchitecture

Even the best planned software quality assurance (QA) process can meet issues when implemented and needs to be changed. In this article, Richard Ellison proposes a process to review your assumptions and improve the implementation of your software testing activities.

As “software eats the world”, being in software engineering has never been more exciting. The promise of software-as-manufacturing is here and it’s complex supply chains, virtual containers, and infrastructure-as-service have lead to huge advances in delivery, capability and availability. #softwaredevelopment   #softwareengineering   #programming

You know that when you deal with this type of topic, you are writing about a touchy subject. When I write that Agile has been sometimes sacralized, my aim is not to hurt any religious or philosophical belief, but rather to see how men behave when adopting new ideas. Raised as a catholic, what will follow is mainly comparison of the respective adoption patterns of Christian and Agile, but I think that it might apply to other philosophical and technological approaches. Ultimately, my conviction is that the values you are trying to respect in your daily personal and professional life are more important than what you claim to be. And sometimes laughing a little bit at ourselves can help to put things in perspective. #projectmanagement   #softwaredevelopment

In agile teams, it’s inevitable that team members are expected to be more cross-functional and produce high quality products for their customers. How can agile team members become more cross-functional and take ownership of quality? Often times there seems to be a scarcity of testing talents in agile teams. How can agile teams create high quality products when working with very few or no testing talents? #softwaretesting
