First of all, I want to be clear that this series of posts have nothing to do with my work at Atlassian. These posts are experiences from previous assignments with Jayway, and I am just now gathering my thoughts on it.

Facilitation

The effort of having 12-14 people involved in testing 2 hours/week needs to be prepared and facilitated. This is something that I usually propose, and the need was acknowledged rather quickly in this team.
