Podcast Episode 78 – Testers’ Growth

Welcome to another episode of the Testing Peers podcast.

This week, join Russell, David, Simon and special guest host, Dan Ashby as we discuss growth as testers.

Before diving in, the Peers discuss things that they have grown and taken pride in, from careers, to children, to plants.

The topic is introduced by Dan, speaking to the current climate in our industry, discussing personal growth, motivators and helping others in their growth, as leaders.

The conversation covers both formal and informal career growth. The Peers reflect on some of their own experiences, successes and failures, highlighting the importance of learning styles, motivators, impact, cost and value.

Dan highlights Bloom’s Taxonomy (evaluation, synthesis, analysis, application, comprehension & knowledge) as a potential overlay for a growth framework.

Our thanks again to Dan for joining us, you can find a lot of his thoughts at danashby.co.uk/

We hope you found the discussion useful and would love to hear your feedback.
