I'm happy to be presenting "Test Reporting to Non-Testers".
It'll be primarilly an experience report with some real data and problems they have caused in their presentation and interpretation.
The presentation will build on themes around assumptions (in the report author and receiver), statistics (their use and misuse) and reading too much into the reported information.
By looking at problems that the examples have caused I'll be able to suggest some alternative approaches for testers when communicating with non-testers.
Communication with non-testers is a big interest of mine - not only do testers have to deal with modelling and assumptions of the product and stakeholders, they also have to handle the communication channels towards non-testers. This has lots areas for pitfalls (a whole different type of modelling and assumption awareness!)
Unfortunately, the mind-map I made when drafting this is huge - it needs to be printed on A3 to be readable. The result is that I'll only be touching on some areas in the presentation - but I think they're some of the key ones and worthwhile.
So there's room for a part II of the presentation!
