This kind of goes off the back of Heathers recent post on saying ‘I don’t know’
If a tester doesn’t know something, what are some practical and effective things they can do to ask for help?
A couple of ideas to get things flowing:
Request a pairing session with someone: it could be another tester, but of course it could be anyone within the team. Be specific about what you want to explore and ask lots of questions along the way.
Share ideas openly along the way: however your team prefers to communicate, how can you share your ideas and progress along the way? Via a chat channel? Set up a group meet or learning focused session on something you are struggling with?
Try explaining / teaching about the thing you are working on: often this can naturally help you clarify your thinking about things, whilst also getting feedback or questions back.
