ISO 29119 – A standard in name only


The petition #Stopiso29119 is gaining serious momentum. I’ve signed and so have a host of my testing friends and colleagues. I think its important to consider the implications of this so called standard and if need be, lend your voice in letting ISO realise that the so called software testing standard DOES NOT enjoy consensus in our field (its shallow collusion of certain parties of interest at best).

Need help understanding why? Please read the following post by James Christie that helped launched the petition as well as the following posts showing why this standard ain’t what its cracked up to be (Hello Test World, James Bach, Michael Bolton and Huib Schoots amongst others).

If you are concerned with the craft and what this standard could do, please consider signing the petition.

(By the way – like most of friends and colleagues, we ARE NOT anti-standards contrary to what some proponents of the standard have attempted to portray).
