Defining Quality

Quality is a word that creates divisiveness. It creates conflict and controversy. However, not all conflict is bad and this particular one is looming over our heads whether we face it or stick our head in the sand.
Whatever we choose to do, there will be a price to pay.

Identifying Risks

People often try to quantify risks. Any project with higher compliance requirements will tell you they estimate Likelihood and Impact, that they then put those in matrix and show which ones are minor, major or critical risks. Apart from helping you pass an audit, these practices also look nice and make you feel safer…
‘Feel safer’. No matter which process you use to quantify risks, it won’t ever remove that it’s all based on feelings.

Discussing Solutions

The focus is on sharing ideas, extending helping hands and finding comon ground. If people have been saying ‘Quality is a Team Responsibility’, then this is the moment it actually takes shape.
Only now have your teammembers understood sufficiently what quality actually means and how they can work together, from within their roles, to achieve it.

Hi, I’m Beren. I started with developing a card deck with testing knowledge. From there, with help from a great many people I built up a workshop, travelled Europe and taught RiskStorming to many, many clients and practitioners. Over the years, this workshop was improved and perfected. What I write here are my experiences, ideas and how-to’s to make your RiskStorming sessions wonderful and valuable.
