Adapting to Changes

Times Are Changing - Are You Ready?

Technology keeps moving forward at a mind-boggling pace. Recession chances are increasing. We need to adapt to those changes. How do we do that as testing professionals?
Let's start at the top and work our way down. 
Management, what can you do to set the example and lead your team? The best first step is to become a great mentor and coach. Evaluate your team and see if you can build skills through training.  What training and certifications should you choose for your software tester employees? ASTQB's ISTQB Foundation Level Certification is the obvious starting point. But your team will need specialty certifications such ISTQB Performance Testing and ISTQB Agile Testing to build capacity. Your team can study as a group or use a proven, trusted Accredited Training Provider to prepare. 
Testers, how long have you been working in this area? Maybe it is time for you to demonstrate that you are irreplaceable. Or that you're ready for promotion.
Do you have the latest skills to prove that you're on the cutting edge? Do you have the knowledge to smoothly transition into a leadership role? Maybe you already have the ISTQB Foundation Level Certification. Is it time for something more advanced like ISTQB Test Analyst or ISTQB Test Manager?
Do you have questions or need suggestions? ASTQB and AT*SQA are here to answer your questions and guide you through the process of professional development using software testing certifications and training.

No matter where you live in the world, being on our Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™ can help you and your employer in 3 ways:
  1. It can help you get jobs with American companies. American companies and governmental organizations check with ASTQB & AT*SQA to see if you are certified. Why? Because ASTQB is the official U.S. board for ISTQB certification and AT*SQA is our official ISTQB exam provider. If you're on this list, companies know you took the official U.S. Board's American English ISTQB exam
  2. It could help your company get contracts with American companies. Your inclusion on the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™ is a bonus for your company because it demonstrates your commitment to working well with a U.S.-based software quality team. That's a big deal, especially when companies issue RFP's requesting that the testers have ISTQB certification and appear on the Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™.
  3. It makes you and your company more prominent. AT*SQA and ASTQB promote the importance of using testers from our Official U.S. List of Certified Software Testers™, and our ads have been seen more than 50 million times.
