The Art of Storytelling

Why are test reports often reduced to counts, percentages and pretty charts? Why do stakeholders want to see these often completely meaningless metrics? Wouldn’t they rather have meaningful information on the actual status of the project? If you learn the art of storytelling, you will be able to provide a useful test report that your stakeholders will be able to use to make important decisions. In this talk, Huib and Paul will walk you through the components of what makes an excellent test report; a test report that relies on actionable information. They will show you how to weave that information into a compelling test story that will leave your stakeholders how they ever lived without it.
