Testing Challenges, Questions, Stories and Perhaps Some Fun

TISQA Fish Bowl Presentation on - Testing Challenges in RTP – Shared Stories, Shared Ideas, and Shared Solutions

A fish bowl is a collaborative meeting where there are 4 chairs in the center of a larger circle of chairs. The four chairs are in the "fish bowl" of the discussion.

The way it works is that a conversation is struck up in the fish bowl. If someone in the audience wants to offer a challenge story, potential answer or approach, simply respond to someone else's  ideas, etc. to the discussion, they need to wait until someone in the fish bowl leaves their chair. Then they join the fish bowl and can offer their advice.

So there is a rotation of folks in & out of the fish bowl as the discussions unfold.  

The format is intended to foster interaction and ideas. It can be quite fun, as long as the group gets engaged and interacts—so bring your challenges and ideas!  Bob Galen will be facilitating the fish bowl.


Come expecting to share and learn from your local TISQA group of testing professionals…

    Very interactive - everyone got a chance to participate without being put on the spot.

    Excellent! My first fish bowl and I wasn't too guppy about it :-)

    Learned a lot about Testing and QA in general. Looking forward to the next fish bowl, particularly if diving into a chosen topic's details rather than generally covering multiple topics.

    The fishbowl exercise was great and almost every single person participated at some point.
