What would happen if the person that is doing the quality assurance in your team suddenly left? Would the team be able to continue delivering features uninterrupted? Or would there be unforeseeable delays?
If you don't have buy-in for experiments & change from the teams & mgmt, you don't have a good chance for success. If you can get buy-in from the team, you might be able to sway mgmt to try it more widely. Show some results. @unremarkableQA@MinistryCork#MinistryCork
Patience, endurance, sneakiness, being open to know things outside of your comfort zone, letting go of control. Knowledge will come because you have a plan, just go for it - some of @unremarkableQA's tips for what aspiring quality coaches need.
Coaches question the status quo, but they aren't the only ones who care about quality - both internal and external. Keep trying to improve, use what you learn from others! @unremarkableQA@MinistryCork#MinistryCork
Influence quality beyond testing. Distribute quality efforts & ownership. Do we need a quality coach? @unremarkableQA says, probably yes, to help the rest of the team get thinking about quality and how to build it in. @MinistryCork#MinistryCork
Look for action items to work on. Build on lessons learned. I like @unremarkableQA's positive and collaborative approach. She says you have to let go of having control (or the illusion of it) over QA and embrace "quality enablement". @ministrycork#MinistryCork
How to influence dev team to engage in quality and testing? It is more work, they aren't used to it. Show them how it will help improve their day-to-day work. For example - being able to fix bugs much faster. @unremarkableQA@MinistryCork#MinistryCork

Great ideas for getting info from customers - baseline "normal" behavior, look for customer behavior patterns after big changes, find out what they find most valuable & if they're still happy. Customers often won't complain, they'll just leave. @unremarkableQA#MinistryCork
What would happen if the tester/QA left your team? @unremarkableQA shares ideas for influencing quality beyond testing, for example, analyze your deployment pipeline (automated or not), get customer input, make obstacles visible. #ministryCork@MinistryCork
