Testing to Detect Problems that Will Hurt the Bottom Line

Many of our stakeholders don't understand testing like we do, especially those whose focus is on making sales, growing revenues, and watching the bottom line. As testers, how can we support them in their efforts to be successful? How can we provide useful, timely information that helps them make important decisions? Pradeep Soundararajan shares his experiences with changing perceptions of testing for those in sales and the ripple effect it had on the testers’ freedom and responsibilities. Pradeep describes how pair testing the product with sales and marketing people, understanding what they need, and the product claims they make have led to significant increases in product sales, quality, and reputation. He shows how this simple idea can change the way we test and how we may help our customers to see testing differently. Learn how Pradeep helps his team members to become leaders in software testing.

Pradeep Soundararajan co-founded Moolya, a company that specializes in exploratory testing and context-driven test approaches while doing automation the best way it can be done. His journey has taken him from a tester to an independent consultant (without work) to an independent consultant (with loads of work) to a mentor to a businessman (with loads of work, of course), while continuing as a hands-on tester. Pradeep facilitates his colleagues to do awesome testing and is working toward creative solutions to change the way people test software.
