Okay, I’m going to gripe a bit about early testing. I hope my Marketing team don’t read this forum.
We have been asked to do some re-skinning, and were given “wireframes” for all the screens that need changing, but the wireframes are in Adobe Cloud, and the person making them has to of course password protect these. As they update the wireframes with final versions to include the correct re-skinning colours, they have to remember to publish the new file in the Adobe cloud as a new file.
Basically marketing don’t get “agile”, because they have not been sharing the graphic designs with any of the testers. In part this has been caused by marketing not being the same person along the chain, and actually being multiple providers, which ads risk.
How do Marketing expect to check that their designs got delivered? It’s the QA’s job to check, but QA need to be in the loop every time the designs change. Perhaps some parts of your organisation are not ready for this left-shift. I think left-shift also entails a kind of communication and a kind of transparency of process that not everyone is good at implementing, much less explaining. It’s hard.
