Explaining testing: Test scripts

Excerpt from: Alan Richardson – What Made You a Leader?

I mean, and this is just one example, they wanted me to write down all the steps I was going to take before I had ever done them. Insane. And when the obvious thing happened i.e. we couldn’t do what we had written because the system didn’t quite work the way we thought it had, they were surprised. But we didn’t learn, instead we amended all the scripts, then started again, and again, and again. Because that was the ‘way testing was done’.
