Nuance on leaving testing to the experts
Yesterday I wrote a blog post entitled "Leave Testing to the Experts" to which Maaret quickly reacted online and by a post where she strongly disagreed with the sentiment. Disagreement is a very useful tool to clarify your thinking, so thanks Maaret!. It's allowed me the opportunity to explain in more detail, why I think what I do, and to investigate some of the nuances on this topic.
Maaret, counter-argued with a convincing description of her egalitarian work place where opinions are offered and accepted in good faith. In truth it left me feeling a little envious, and a commitment to work harder on taking 'being told' as "bad communication with good intent".
But I think this post misses a vital point and that is responsibility.
