Brian Osman

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

I am the Principal Consultant for OsmanIT - Software Testing Consultants and Trainers. He delivers training that is based on improving the way testers see, think, and interact with others and the system under test. He also continues to interact with like-minded, free thinking testers and takes the opportunity to present at conferences and SIGsT groups.

I was a session speaker at Star West 2012 held at Disneyland, California where he spoke on using agile practices on a non-agile project and has spoken at ANZTB 2010 and STANZ 2009 and 2010 conferences (2010 as a keynote speaker).

He also founded the Kiwi Workshop on Software Testing (KWST) along with James Bach and has helped as a course assistant instructor for AST (BBST online series of courses with lead instructors Scott Barber and Michael Larsen).

Brian aligns himself with the Context Driven School of Testing and is a proponent of effective, risk based Exploratory Testing. He is also an advocate for using session based test management and using lean and low tech, high value approaches to testing where appropriate.

Brian is an experienced test manager, tester, consultant, trainer and speaker with over 13 years experience in the craft.
