Feedback form is now closed.
The first and only QA in small startup, one QA in the team of ten developers, QA as a separate team or organization, QA who works in the same team in the same company for a long time. What is common between all of them? They all can be caught in isolation trap and lose their effectiveness and even bring harm to the project.

Isolation was always used as punishment, it increases risk of mental health issues, it is dangerous, but the issue of QA’s isolation is often overlooked. Not using test design techniques, inventing bicycles and missing obvious harmful bugs are only some of the problems that isolations can bring. We need to learn how to recognize isolation issues early and how to avoid isolation traps.

  • How to keep QAs connected to the outside world
  • The most common isolation traps and how to avoid them.
