Organizational Patterns between Developers and Testers - Investigating Testers' Autonomy and Role Identity

Michal Doležel, Michael Felderer
2018 Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems  
We also argue that especially the organizational model of "combined software engineering", where the roles of programmers and testers are reunited into a single role of "software engineer", deserves a  ...  More specifically, we propose that the concept of role identity anchored in (social) identity theory can be applied to the profession of software testers, and their activities studied accordingly.  ...  We indeed agree that ISD teams may function very well without dedicated testers (Prechelt, 2016) .  ...
