Test af software er en ressource- og tidskrævende proces i kortere eller længere tidsafgrænsede perioder for de fleste virksomheder. Det ekstra ressourcebehov er ofte kun midlertidigt og derfor er det oplagt at hyre en konsulent til at hjælpe med at få opgaverne løst.

Jeg kan hjælpe din virksomhed med at få planlagt og gennemført softwaretest. Min rolle kan være som tester eller testmanager.

Jeg har erfaring med flere forskellige udviklingsmodeller og den måde som test kan integreres i et udviklingsforløb. Jeg er bevidst om at test er en støtteproces og ikke en aktivitet der udføres i isolation. Samarbejde, kommunikation, pragmatisme og tilpasning til den aktuelle opgave er bland mine styrker sammen med et højt testfagligt niveau.

Jeg er uddannet Elektonikingeniør fra DTU og er certificeret Advanced Level Test Manager via ISTQB. Mine ynglingsfag på DTU var matematik og datakommunikation og min største styrke er at jeg kan omsætte teori til praktisk anvendelse. Desuden er jeg certificeret på ITIL foundation niveau samt har en IPMA D certificering i projektledelse.

Jeg kan hjælpe med at udarbejde teststrategier på virksomhedsniveau eller i de enkelte projekter. I projekter udarbejder jeg testplaner, fremstiller testspecifikationer, opretter testprocedurer og testcases. Jeg kan både styre testafviklingen i et hold af testere, være den som gennemfører testafviklingen eller begge dele samtidigt. Jeg har erfaring med at arbejde i et internationalt miljø, hvor der er behov for at koordinere testindsats på tværs at tidszoner og kulturer.

Jeg udfærdiger testrapporter og har uden vanskeligheder evner for at kommunikerer test resultater til forskellige grupper af interessenter på deres niveau og efter deres behov.

Jeg kan teste i forløb der leverer helt nye softwareprodukter eller være med til at teste nye ændringer i eksisterende software som allerede er i drift. Jeg kender til de problematikker og krav som projekter stilles overfor, når der skal releases til produktion.

Testing overview

I saw this illustration a while ago and I like it a lot. Now I’m using it when I’m communicating test to non-testers when we discuss what test should be about in a given project on a strategic level. Read more about the model by Dan Ashby at danashby.co.uk

I have a degree in Engineering, Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering (of Honours Standard) from Technical University of Denmark (formerly DIA-ET) and I am ISTQB® certified Advanced Level Test Manager and hold an IPMA level D certification.

I have through my job career had different job roles within testing such as tester, test manager, test specialist and test environment responsible. In carrying out the testing tasks I have acquired extensive experience in testing as a profession and not least experience with testing in relation to organization, projects, corporate culture, and customers.

I like this description of the testing role:

“To test is to evaluate a product by learning about it through experimentation.
A tester’s role is to develop himself/herself as a tester, connect with the clients of testing, prepare for testing, perform testing, and report the results of testing.” – James Bach

I am experienced in:
– Hiring of Testers and Test Engineers, and managing teams of Testers
– Test scope clarification and prioritization
– Test planning, Test design and Test execution
– Reporting Test status during test execution and preparation of Test reports.

I have been working actively with testing topics such as:
– Test approaches in Waterfall, V-model, Hybrid, and Iterative development models
– Test Process – Development and adaption of the testing process as a general method
– Test policy and strategy in relation to project and business goals
– Release test management with test responsibilities for complete releases from multiple projects
– Coaching of Testers and Test Managers
– Education of Project Manager in Test

My skills within testing I have achieved by working with a wide range of products, including: railway safety systems, data communications, ticketing systems, and IT systems in the financial sector.

I have achieved my qualifications through job training, courses and training related certifications.

As a person I have high learning ability, in addition, I am flexible, enthusiastic, enterprising and outgoing. In my work I am communicating, systematic, analytical and have a strong sense of tidiness.

I believe I have a context-driven mindset, I am curious by nature, I ask a lot of questions and sometimes come up with new ideas.

It is my goal to always explore and learn something new.
