Experience report: How to bring change without permission (how I got test automation into the team)

Sitting at your desk, testing another user story, you think of changing the process by adding more automated scripts to free your time for more exploratory testing. You propose end-to-end test automation on top of the small scale automation you already have, only to realise the attitudes are “that will not work here, we tried it before”. You still believe in it strongly, so where to go when you’re told not to do it?

In this talk, I will share my story of being the tester whose proposal got turned down for previous bad experiences. Instead of not doing the needed end-to-end automation, I made sure I did not compromise my regular work but still make time for working on this. Showing it can be done changed “it won’t work” to “This is really helpful”. Join me for learning how to break barriers for the things you believe in.
