    Watch Our Webinar: “Thinking Outside the Box: Cognitive Bias and Testing” with Lisa Crispin!

    Discover how our unconscious biases impact software testing and learn techniques to think innovatively.

    Event Overview: Our unconscious biases affect every aspect of our lives. How do they impact our ability to test software products? It’s not so hard to make sure a feature meets agreed-upon requirements. It’s a lot harder to avoid the “unknown unknowns” that will cause customer pain in production.

    As testers, we often hear that it’s essential to “think outside the box”. This lets us innovate and discover the unexpected. It helps us find new ways to solve problems. And, it is hard to do! We all have unconscious biases that can limit our observational skills and creativity. In this session, we’ll look at how different thinking styles can get in the way of effective testing. We’ll do some quick exercises to illustrate different ways our brains think, including one your whole team can use together. Participants will get several ideas of ways to build up their lateral thinking “muscles”.

    Key Topics:

    • Exploring the impact of biases on testing effectiveness
    • Strategies to foster innovative thinking in testing
    • Practical exercises to enhance lateral thinking skills

    Why Watch?

    • Gain insights into identifying and overcoming cognitive biases
    • Learn techniques to enhance creativity and problem-solving in testing
    • Participate in interactive exercises to apply new concepts with your team

    If you missed the live session, you can now watch the recording to gain valuable insights and participate in interactive exercises to apply these concepts with your team.
