Atomic Talk Title: Why and how not to be a gatekeeper

Do you see yourself as a gatekeeper? Do you describe yourself as a person “responsible for quality”? Does your team wait for you to “add the stamp of approval”?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, I’d like to share with you why this mindset can be harmful, and share what you actually can do to do your job as a tester better. And even if you do not see yourself as a gatekeeper, this session will provide tips on how you can strengthen your position as a tester in the team.


  1. Shifting to the mindset that you’re not a gatekeeper, but informer, can seed quality accountability and help the team accept your findings better.
  2. Use your risk awareness to communicate better.
  3. Utilise data to add weigh and impact on bug advocacy.
  4. Stay humble while communicating on quality: be grateful to bugs reported by others, and graceful when reporting the issues you found.
