September 4, 2023 - September 5, 2023€1099
At Testing United 2023 I will talk about Improving Your Testing Skills and Practices with Gamification. The conference will be held in Bratislava and Miami, and in VR, on September 4 & 5.
Improving Your Testing Skills and Practices with Gamification
So many challenges, and so little time. As testers, we need to sharpen the saw, but how? Gamification can be a way to look at how you’re doing and find out where to improve. It’s a great way to have everyone engaged and get the best out of people.
With games, we can foster psychological safety and create a setting where people feel safe to speak up about how things are going. Playing games with coaching cards people share what’s working and what isn’t, the challenges they are facing, and what they would like to try out. Everybody will be involved, it’s a fun and effective way to practice new ideas and collaboratively decide on what to improve next.
The testing coaching cards contain statements about agile testing mindset, values, principles, and practices. Playing with these coaching cards helps testers to explore their contributions and look for ways to increase the value that they contribute to their team and organization.
In this presentation, Ben Linders will show how playing games (onsite or online) with the Agile Testing Coaching Cards and Agile Quality Coaching Cards help to explore your current testing and quality practices and decide as a team on what to improve and experiment with.
3 key takeaways
- Learn about gamification as a way to engage people into learning
- Understand the importance of psychological safety in improving skills and team performance
- See how coaching cards can be used to discuss and self-assess working practices
Testing United is a testing conference aimed at all levels of testers, test leads, test managers, test consultants and IT employees that come in daily contact with testing teams. The conference unites experts from the extended central Europe region, and thus expands on this idea by periodically rotating the venue between Vienna, Prague and Bratislava since 2018.
With this year’s main topic “2023: Tester’s place in Universe, Metaverse & Beyond“, experienced speakers will outline the changes testing community is facing.
