Strategies for Meeting Stakeholder Expectations
“Expectations were like fine pottery. The harder you held them, the more likely they were to crack.” - Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings.
Sometimes, as a Tester I feel as if I am the only one with a grip on reality!
- Delivery into test is late but still the Project Manager expects us to do the same level of testing in less time.
- The system is not meeting the customer expectations but still the Product Owner wants to ship.
- The Developers are rejecting every defect we raise and somehow it’s our fault that the code is buggy.
