Career testing offers testers a number of ways to reach career goals and aspirations. Testers are usually on a regular journey from young engineers to rather high-quality engineering positions, such as test drive robots, before finding a fork on the road, driving a path, and a technical growth path. While the management career path is fairly well-known and the drivers seem like a dozen !, the technical pathway seems to be generally unclear, especially if there are few senior technical leaders in the testing space to visit your organization. The purpose of this post is to hopefully betray the Bodybuilding role, which is part of the technical growth path of testing.
The role of bodybuilding (TA) is the organization's leading position and has equal management positions for rewards, recognition, visibility and influence. However, it is an essential factor identifying a Manager TA, a lack of direct responsibility for managing people. Although management generally means man-handling as the most important element of work, TA does not directly handle people. This, however, does not in any way allow TA to be shut down, so that it influences, mentorates, prepares and directs the members of the Testing Organization – a very important task of TA.
Some of the features expected by the tester architect
- Extensive technical skills that make the product, technology and competitive knowledge. Careful knowledge of the domain / areas to be handled is essential. It is not enough to be a specialist in any field or technology and requires wide and fairly deep understanding of a wide range of different technologies and tools.
- Knowledge of current industry quality and testing processes and practices, tools and techniques
- Ability to teamwork. This point can not be emphasized enough, as the last acceptable thing is that silo behavior or simply is a singer star . Absolutely indispensable here for the team to deliver excellent performance. "Influence ability" despite its direct reporting relationship is very important. In this situation, high EQ is just as important as high IQ. The ability to cooperate and to cooperate is important
- It is important to have excellent communication skills – both inside and outside the TO, between teams and customers – both horizontally and vertically. Effective negotiating skills are also very important.
- Another very important aspect is the excellent working relationship with the manager. No, I'm not saying this because I consider it on the management side. The fact that this is a successful technical assistance requires that you work closely with the management and work closely together, keep up with management and update developments, find and provide input and feedback, regular reporting, and more. This attribute can not be emphasized enough
- Focusing and prioritization is important. Distinguishing between urgent and important and effective priority tasks is crucial
- Focusing on explicit and implicit customer / user needs
- Self-management is a key feature of TA. It is important to be able to work without tracking or "too much" control. The TA must be self-motivating and self-starter. No, this does not relieve the manager's duties in treating TA as needed, but TA has very little to do. Waiting for a TA to be assigned to a product, project, or specific area, positive and accepted results are almost always guaranteed
- The ability to motivate yourself and others is important. Furthermore, it is vital to have a good example of tracking other members of the TO
- Key positioning skills are also key. In many cases TA needs to define and set goals, including stretch goals.
- Patience and humility are valuable, especially for all relationships with team members. This is especially true when mentoring or controlling other team members, having skills that can be understood by the student at their level, while having good listening skills. It is imperative to be humble to acknowledge the need for continuous learning and to pursue a learning program that constantly refreshes the skills and keeps track of current developments in the sector.
- Ability to strategize and anticipate, and the big picture
- taciturn, high level of integrity, highest proactive behavior, ability to initiate, and professional behavior can of course be expected from the TA
- Sound Project Management Capabilities  Software Analysis and Design Knowledge / Experience It is also required when software quality and testing. You need to have practical experience with both functional and non-functional testing and, if necessary, examine your requirements, design, and code.
The inclusion of the above is useful in the general role of the Body Architect and some of the expectations surrounding this position. The above list is by no means complete, or full representation of the responsibilities / requirements of the Body Architect's role. Within each major organization, each organization and group has its own expectations that form part of the Body Architectural Charter. However, most or all of the items listed above will be present in one form or another.
