Special Topics
Courage and Freedom in Exploratory Testing

Exploratory testing (ET) consists of simultaneous learning, test design, test execution, and optimization. Most people are able to adopt the outward behaviors of ET but struggle to adopt an ET mindset. Griffin Jones explains that this mindset requires reflecting on four basic questions: Am I learning and adapting? Am I working on the correct mission? Should I redesign the task? Should I change how I perform the task? Sharing his experiences across project roles, Griffin explains why courage and freedom are critical ingredients in answering those four questions.
