Get to know your consultant

Are you looking for advice and help with your software testing challenges? Are you open to ideas that are not just plucked from a box of “industry best practices”? If so, you might be in the right place!

We believe that your context is important and solutions that might work well for a different organization are not necessarily likely to work well for yours.

About Dr Lee Consulting

Dr Lee Consulting is a software testing consultancy offering training, advice, content creation, testing practice assessments and coaching to help those looking to improve their software testing and quality practices.

The unexpected end of Lee’s long stint working as an employee of a software development business led to the creation of this consultancy as a way to share his skills, experience and knowledge acquired over twenty-five years in the industry.

As the sole consultant in the business, you get to leverage the expertise of a seasoned practitioner, author and presenter in the worldwide testing community.

Working closely with your business to understand the problems you’re trying to solve, Lee produces context-driven solutions rather than pulling from a box of “industry best practices”. This bespoke approach employs the Socratic method and we’ll ask lots of questions as we learn together to fully understand the problems to be solved.

Lee’s extensive experience of influencing mindset change around testing will help you achieve the changes you need to genuinely improve your testing and quality practices.

Dr Lee Consulting offers a range of services in testing and quality management, from the curation of tailored training materials, through the creation of reference materials, to performing assessments of your current testing practices. Coaching of your team members as they implement our solutions is also available.

Written and verbal communication around testing is a speciality of Dr Lee Consulting and Lee can also serve as an expert witness in software testing.

Dr Lee Consulting is a “not just for profit” business, giving back to the broader testing community with free resources, presentations to testing community events, and free/low cost assistance to volunteer & community organizations.
