It Works!

Taken from blog post by Michael Bolton It Works on March 31st, 2014

What does it mean it works? I have heard this terminology used in the work space, and then heard someone else come back and pretty much reduced it to nothing. IT says it works, Care or Sales etc. will have a very different view point..

According to Michael, “To me, when people say “it works”, they really mean

Some aspect
of some feature
or some function
to meet some requirement
to some degree
based on some theory
and based on some observation
that some agent made
under some conditions
or maybe more.”

Just because someone says it works, a tester does still need to “question the statement “it works”, to investigate the claim, and to elaborate on it such that important people in the product know what it really means.”
