I was watching the Winter Olympics with curiousity – there are some amazing athletes and some amazing sports.
One among them was curling.
I didn’t get it.
The game reminds me of lawn bowls on ice except that the crowd went nuts!
So with this in mind, the analogy and test management came to mind. I had a discussion in a test management class and we came to similar conclussions.
Curling is a team game with 4 people with 2x team members called “sweepers” clearing the path so that the “stone” has a smooth journey to the “house” ( the bullseye.)
My question then is, how much of testing is like this?
How much time as testers/leads/managers do we spend on smoothing the path for testing?
