Christopher West replied to Pm's discussion How to manage past career gap ?
"Unlikely to be your career gap that's the problem. 4+ years consecutive experience post career gap should be enough for most employers. I wouldn't dwell too much on being rejected a couple of times by management interviews, that happens…"

"If there is a lack of trust, or perhaps a genuine interest in your coverage, how about a nice mind-map style diagram showing areas of test. If you've produced something similar as part of your analysis anyway, it's no extra effort.…"

"Sprint Test Reports sounds like a smell for lack of trust or lack of understanding. Can you explain to the people that require the report what the Definition of Done is? That should be their sprint test report, am I wrong? You could invite the…"

João Guilherme Farias Duda replied to Christopher West's discussion Sprint Test Reports
"I like to think on test sprint reports as the way to give to product owners and other business people picture of the product, to help them to decide the direction of the next sprints. They don't need to know the details of what was tested and…"

Sprint Test Reports

Hi everyone,Avid lurker, first time poster.I have a question I'd like to pose to the group regarding Sprint Test Reports. For those of you who work in an Agile Scrum environment - are you producing Sprint Test Reports? If so, what information do they contain? Who are the audience? and are they actually of benefit to anyone?The reason I ask is I am currently leading a team of internationally located testers who all work on different software products but I would like to template a Sprint Test…See More
