I assume most of us who work as testers, have to come up with an answer for „How is the quality in the project?“ in exchanges with non-testers, and sometimes even with different testers within a project.
This was no exemption in my recent project, a multi-team, multi-domain program of 180 involved people from all disciplines.
Instead of providing a one-dimensional “quality” metric, which carries the risks of misunderstanding or misinterpretation, I let myself be guided by the Holistic Testing approach.
This is our journey of the visual collaboration tool, the “Quality Radar”.
I will present the initial idea, the multiple aspects of it, the evolution of the template and how we incorporate it within the teams to improve their quality assessment.
