Battle Strategies for High-Performing Testers
Summary:Let's face it: Software testers are constantly in a state of warfare, figuratively speaking. There's a tug of war between resources and the amount of work that needs to be done.

In this article, I will consider Sun Tsu ancient strategies in his book The Art of War and apply them to the realm of the high performing software test engineer. These same fundamental principles define our best means for success on the battle field, in the board room, or in the development labs.
