Welcome to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 214!   

The Software Process and Measurement Cast 214 features my interview with Iain McCowatt.  We talked about the commoditization of testing and how commoditization can devalue and demotivate any team.  

Iain McCowatt is a context-driven tester, test manager and automator whose experience and passion for testing spans multiple industries and more than a decade.  As a Test Practice Lead and Program Test Manager with CGI in Atlantic Canada, he specializes in providing clients with innovative solutions to difficult testing problems and in building teams that place an emphasis on the skill of the tester. Having been both a customer and provider of testing, Iain takes a particular interest in the value that testing can provide. In his spare time, Iain is active in the software testing community, serves as a volunteer instructor with the Association of Software Testing, and blogs at exploringuncertainty.com
