In 2013, he co-founded Tesena | Smart Testing with the slightly ambitious, but very seriously intended goal of changing the software testing world. He enjoys working with our clients to help solve their testing and software quality challenges at individual, team, group, and organizational levels. Beyond his commitment to advancing software quality, he is also dedicated to education and professional development.

What did attendees say about the course?

"Absolvování kurzu TMAP®: Quality for Cross-Functional Teams pod vedením Phila Roystona z Teseny bylo skvělým zážitkem. Phil dokázal srozumitelně a efektivně předat klíčové koncepty a praktiky, které jsou zásadní pro zajištění kvality v multidisciplinárních týmech. Díky jeho odborným znalostem a angažovanosti jsem získal mnoho praktických dovedností, které mohu ihned aplikovat ve své práci. Interaktivní přístup a realistické příklady z praxe výrazně pomohly upevnit naučené koncepty. Tento kurz bych doporučil každému, kdo hledá zlepšení svých dovedností v oblasti testování a zajištění kvality."

Radek Šikola

"If you grow up in the world full of waterfalls, it might be tough to shift both your thinking and the concepts on which you are founding your work. This course is not only crucial to survive in this fast-paced and ever-changing world of IT, but also made me realize that certain small steps can be made on a much smaller scale, hopefully with positive impact. Thought-provoking and inspiration, with practical examples ready to be applied immediately. Could not recommend more."
