How to Sell Testing by Jim Hazen
Jim Hazen has written an excellent article "The secret skill – How to sell testing" in the August 2011 issue of Software Test & Quality Assurance Magazine. You can get it at http://www.softwaretestpro.com/Publication/p/STPM (free registration required).
I particularly liked how he listed some of the constituents being served
- Project Management
- Technical Support/IT & Customer Services
- End User
- C-Level and Senior Management
According to the bio in the article:
"Jim Hazen is a veteran of the software testing trenches. He has over twenty years of experience testing applications on the PC and Web platforms. Mr. Hazen has been involved with the startup of testing groups at multiple companies and has done consulting work for the last 10 years. He has helped clients implement tools for functional automation, performance testing and test management. And worked with clientele management to achieve efficiency gains and the financial benefits associated to testing.
