Hello, Hope you’re doing great today.
Any thoughts on managing and also coping mentally with making mistakes when writing your Test Specifications?
Usually writing Test Specifications is one of my strenghts but Im making a million mistakes at my new job. I think that the reasons for this are these:
- Tests come from requirements that arent specific and still open.
- No manuals or guides to use the tools.
- No information about how the system works.
- The developer is always busy and there is a terribly, terribly tight schedule for all testing activities.
- No other projects have Test Specifications that I could use as reference.
I looked horribly in front of my manager because we reviewed the TS today and everything was going fine until we got to a couple of huge errors that pointed out that I dont know how that area works (I had created my own theory of how it worked and it was not like that).
In my defense, I’ve been asking for a review of the requirements and the TS review for months. At the end I told them I was not going to record the results until there was a peer and lead review.
I would really appretiate your thoughts!
