At the last Forum meeting we held a special session at the end of the day to discuss how the Forum should evolve and improve. There were four core topics discussed and four main actions arising from the discussion. This note sets out our proposed way forward on each. We have created three BLOG Posts on the site that provide more detail and background.
At the feedback session on how to enhance the TMF, we discussed the possibility of staging regional Test Management Forum events. since 2004, the forum meetings have all been in Central London. That's fine for those that live nearby, but it's quite a journey and expense to travel if you live out of town.
Now, we have some interest in running regional groups in both the Bristol and the Leeds areas, and we would very much like to gauge the interest in these and other areas. Here's what we propose to do:
At the feedback session on how to enhance the TMF, the consensus was that members really appreciate getting involved in discussions and are keen to avoid the TMF turning into “just another testing event” and we’re certainly in total support of that!
But there were also feelings expressed that we have drifted away from our original vision of a focusing on open discussion and moving towards a more conventional presentation format. This has happened gradually over time for several reasons, but we plan to address this problem as a matter of priority.
