Ajay: Hi Meeta,
Ajay: you prefer twitter or gmail chat or nothing (considering the time)
me: btw i hv been planning to sleep since 10 pm but been consistently on
Ajay: That's the power of ET discussions I would say
me: u bet
Ajay: why do you think managers need details of a process? They are afraid that they do not know what the tester is doing?
me: nah ! they do not know what they or their team is doing. They do not have competency in most of the cases to understand what is rightly done and what is not hence the approach
Ajay: "a document which has been passed on by seniors and told that this would work in most cases" something like that?why is there a gap b/w good tester and a good manager?
me: kind of low self confidence is another reason, bad technical skills is yet another. There is never a gap between a good tester and a good manager
Ajay: is it true that testers with bad tech skills are promoted to management faster than good testers?
me: gap will be there only between a good tester and a bad manager
Ajay: If you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted stuff
me: nah !promotion in product companies is due to your skills. Mostly promotion in service industry is due to your buttering skills
Ajay: good to know why is your smiley not animated?on google talk or Gmail?
Ajay: How come iPhone testing?
me: no idea, why it does not get animated ...test it out
Ajay: so I asked: are you on Gmail or Google talk?
