Adding external testers can create problems. This will help prevent them.
The Importance of Standards
How Can You Add External Testers Successfully?
Does your company utilize temporary testers or outside testing services? If so, it is important that you ensure their communication and testing principles mesh well with your current team. Otherwise, your team could find it stressful and confusing to work with outside testers who do not use your team's standards.
Why is this important? The challenges of integrating temporary testers with your U.S.- based team can include a loss of efficiency, miscommunication, and, worst case, quality issues.
