#TestCulture ๐Ÿฆ… Episode 7 - Best practices for working on a collaborative project

New work practices have been designed and adapted for test specialists to be better organized for collaborative projects. We asked IT teams to give us their successful working methods.

๐Ÿ๐ฌ๐ญ ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ž: Communicate regularly.
It is important ๐š๐š˜ ๐š’๐š—๐š๐š˜๐š›๐š– colleagues about the project and your own tasks progress. It is always beneficial to know where colleagues are in order ๐š๐š˜ ๐šŠ๐š๐š“๐šž๐šœ๐š one's own schedule and to be aware of the evolution of the project.

๐Ÿ๐ง๐ ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ž: Centralize each decision and information in writing and prioritize them.

Sometimes information gets lost in conversations. It is also necessary ๐š๐š˜ ๐š—๐š˜๐š๐šŽ details that are crucial in the development of the project. โ€˜The words fly away, the writings remain!โ€™

๐Ÿ‘๐ซ๐ ๐ซ๐ฎ๐ฅ๐ž: Staying organized and questioning the work organization. Sometimes, it is necessary ๐š๐š˜ ๐š›๐šŽ๐š˜๐š›๐š๐šŠ๐š—๐š’๐šฃ๐šŽ the work structure, even if the current organization works. It is always good to renew the methods to give a new breath to collaborative work, and it is not recommended to wait until a problem arises to change the way things are done.

And you, what are your recommendations to work on collaborative projects ?
