This is one famous movie quote, and I think it applies greatly to Engineering in general (or anywhere in fact)! I don't think a week has gone by in my career where I couldn't have uttered the following:
|What we have here is a failure to communicate (Cool Hand Luke)|
I saw this quote (although I haven't seen the film), and I don't even think it needs any explanation....
But I'll explain anyways! I would say that 80% of problems that are in a workplace are down to a failure in communication, if a bug is found, a failure to communicate the effects of the bug properly can lead to a false severity, or a false priority. That's not the only time when a failure to communicate can be damaging, especially for QA, but a failure to communicate when understanding requirements or when explaining what you are testing can lead to a misunderstanding and unnecessary confusion.
Stay tuned for more quotes from top films such as Top Gun, Casablanca, Forrest Gump and more!
