Maaret Pyhäjärvi on the Paradox of Tight Schedules, Pull Systems, Art of co-creation and Ensemble Programming: LT011 Part 1
In this episode, we explore the concept of co-creation in the testing process and how testers can work with what they have today to improve the overall quality of the product. Our guest speaker, Maaret Pyhäjärvi, shares experience and insights from her award-winning career of 25 years in the industry and delivered 510 session in 28 countries.
One of the key takeaways from this episode is the importance of working with what you have today. Unless you can turn your past mistakes into some kind of positive force for the future, then you're probably wasting your time with those. This leads to a discussion of pull systems and how they can be used in the testing process to improve efficiency.
We also delve into the art of co-creation and how it can be fostered within a team. Another technique that is discussed is ensemble programming. The role of the tester in ensemble programming is also explored, and how their contributions can be invaluable to the process.
Finally, we touch upon the paradox of tight schedules and how collecting pizza boxes can be a signal of an unhealthy work environment. By emphasizing the importance of co-creation and using available resources efficiently, we can improve the overall quality of the product while also promoting a healthy work culture.
