TLDR; Lead without leadership authority by assuming that courage is contagious
I suspect most emotions are contagious. Laughter is contagious. Fear is contagious. Courage is contagious.
All of these I’ve used as tactics in my work communication.
I’m pretty sure I covered both Laughter and Fear in Dear Evil Tester, so in this blog post we’ll get serious and look at courage.
Courage is Contagious
This tactic can help you lead when you are not in a leadership position.
This tactic can helps your team grow and embody the behaviours you want to encourage in your environment.
This tactic can help improve communication on projects.
Have the courage to:
do what needs to be done* step up and do the work you want to see done* do the work the way you want to see it done* learn what you want your team to learn* pair with your team members to learn* say the things in meetings that need to be said* say “No”* say “I don’t know”* ask questions that reveal unstated assumptions* ask questions that reveal conflicting understanding* ask open questions that allow someone to make their point clearly without you being seen to put words in their mouth* discuss the way forwardUnfortunately, of the emotion based tactics I mentioned, this was the harder of the three for me to implement. Because at the time I needed to implement it I didn’t have people in visible leadership positions doing the same.
I had to draw on memories of multiple people, from incidents from multiple projects. Fortunately I had seen people I worked with do this in other companies.
Hopefully you’ll have seen people interacting in this way and can take courage from their previous examples. If not, there’s always comics, movies and novels to draw inspiration from.
If courage is contagious. If you start, people will follow.
Você poderia escrever o mesmo teste, aumentar o escopo e economizar burocracia em apenas uma linha: “Validar os campos do formulário de cadastro, validando as restrições e mascaras dos inputs.”
Existem sistemas com regras de negócio complexas que precisam de vários cenários, consequentemente vários casos de teste detalhados (mas nada de passo a passo, por favor!), mas ai sim o “caso de teste” estará sendo utilizado para seu verdadeiro propósito e não pelo simples fato de fazer uma matriz com parâmetros que podem ser críticos ou não.
Quando escrevi esse post a um tempão atrás… não entendia o movimento lean / agile direito e não trabalhava 100% em uma equipe testando e programando… :)
Muito bom Thiago!!! Uma dúvida pessoal, gostaria de saber como que eu faço para gerar meu dado com o Faker e automaticamente ele atualizar o dado gerado no meu arquivo YML (que utilizo para colocar minha massa)? Posteriormente iria realizar outro teste com o dado gerado no teste anterior com o Faker.
