• Telling a Story with a User Story

    Everyone has their own way of approaching User Stories, whether it's following a structure like Gherkin, or something they've adapted over the creation of hundreds of user stories, having worked with different teams. And this is my own approach...

  • Checking in - moving the dial

    Is this another blog about looking after your staff in the ‘new normal’, in these ‘unprecedented times’, after ‘all this uncertainty’? Yep, it is. But I simply want to reiterate some points that I feel are incredibly important to keep in the foreground as we all try to rebuild and reshape.

  • Pair with the devs, become a better team and ditch the defect reports

    Over the last few years. I have had more opportunities to pair with developers whilst testing. During this post I want to explore what I think enables effective pairing between developers and testers, and what it means for the quality and overall delivery of software.

  • Using Product Metrics in Product Management

    From my personal experience, (pre Agile and the Digital Revolution) Product Metrics have been around for quite some time,  but were being identified as something like Project Benefits or Benefits Realisation Metrics. The Benefits Realisation process would identify metrics, benefits or value a project may have to the organisation. The only issue was that these were specifically created and centred around the project itself (which obviously were valuable at the time).
