Project Management Traceability

04/23/20161 Min Read — In Project Management, Testing

Just like your developers and testers want to be able to debug a stacktrace, so do your project managers want to trace issues at the project level. How do we do this? How do we work in a traceable way?

Use SOC2 style commits and branch names. Use git-flow or git-hub-flow. Put SHAs in your bug reports. Put SHAs in your fix notes. Link your test case to your found bug which links to your requirement.

Interlink all of your assets. Some tools try to make this seamless but when in doubt, PUT A SHA ON IT.
