I'm a BBST Instructor

That's right, I completed the trifecta of BBST classes and decided to continue on to being an Instructor. I finished the class in November but just recently got the proof:

Boom! Now comes the hard work - working as an assistant through enough classes until I learn the system and work my way up to a lead instructor role for AST.

Part of my desire for taking the BBST Instructor class is to become more familiar with material taught in the BBST classes, get exposed to new student's ideas (that will hopefully broaden and challenge my understanding) and learn how to provide important and useful feedback (and help others do the same thing).

Eventually I hope to teach the BBST materials to people I work with and help expose others to the material outside of AST. This was the first step.

Quality Equals Profit

I published my first article called Quality Equals Profit, How Understanding Quality Helps Us Test in the December 2013 issue of Testing Circus magazine. Pages 16 to 18.

The article is a reflection on a quote from one of my executives saying she thought "quality equals profits".

If you read it, come back and leave a comment letting me know what you think.
