About Matthias Rasking

Father, husband, Tester, TMMi Technical chair – Matthias has been in consulting in the testing/quality area now for more than 20 years, 10 of which he has supported the TMMi Foundation as he really like processes and they way you can adapt/tailor them to your needs. For that you need to understand people – their motives, fears and drivers. His proudest work achievements are creating a transparent place where people feel engaged and taken care of as well as setting up a Test Center at a German client that created huge value for the business department. Finally, he is  proud of impacting many people with small process improvements and helping them grow. 

Fun Fact: 5 kids – 4 cats – 3 languages – 2 dogs – but only 1 life.

Speech title:

Processes are a thing of the past, right?

About his speech:

Processes seem to be a bit of the past, with everything done autonomously in self-organized teams. Working more closely together however means you need to know the implicit and explicit expectations, requirements and principles, especially as experimentation and fail-fast prototypes sometimes have a way of causing production issues themselves (remember The Phoenix Project?). This talk will explore the world of implicit expectations, explicit processes and everything in between. And share past experiences how we can use a process framework like TMMi for testing processes and improvement to get buy-in with different stakeholders on the most important aspects – people, simplicity and trust. Target Audience:Anyone, from testers to Management, with or without process improvement or standards experience. Takeaways: How to improve testing practices in an agile/DevOps world. How to convince people there’s something in it for them.
