Speech title:

The hidden logic of thinking for testers

About his speech:

Ability to think deeper is one of the most valuable skills that every tester needs, and yet it is rarely taught in universities and even in workplaces. In today’s world, problems are becoming more complex with the addition of new technologies, tools and approaches. To deal with these challenges and remain competitive we should start to think about thinking and build a framework that helps us to face any testing challenges thoughtfully and require a new toolset or framework for thinking. At its core, it must be a framework that helps with problem-solving & provides a structure for our solutioning process.  For this, learning and understanding how to spot gaps in our thinking process play a significant role.

As explained by Daniel Kahneman in the book “Thinking, Fast and Slow”, our brains have two thinking systems, ‘System 1’ which is faster and intuitive and the slower and contemplative ‘System 2’. The interaction of the two systems often helps us to get things right or fail at times. Understanding the way we use these systems to think helps us in better decision making and problem-solving. Connecting all the dots around thinking, I have figured out some hidden logics that we still need to explore and analyse. This talk will get you thinking about how you naturally think and unleash its full potential to be a skilled tester by leveraging those hidden logics & approaches.  

Key takeaways:

  • Explains the importance/role of different thinking types in testers
  • Improve your ability to think, analyse and interpret using those thinking types
  • Guides how to generate a unique art of thinking(Incorporate thinking with metacognitive skills) for testers
  • Learn to spot “gaps” in the thinking process
  • Role of design thinking & Empathic thinking in the craft of testing 
Who is it for:
Testers of all levels, Test Managers, Project Managers
