Dr. Klaudia Dussa-Zieger is Principal Consultant at Method Park Consulting GmbH and has been involved in software testing and software quality for almost 20 years. She is convinced that “given the increasing complexity of today’s software systems, their development is not possible without testing”. In her specialist field, the continuous improvement of the test process as well as ensuring professional training and further qualification are of particular importance for her.

For more than 15 years she has been trainer for the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation and Advanced Level which allows her to pass on her long-standing experience. She herself holds the ISTQB® Certified Tester Full Advanced Level certification. Process and test improvements result from the assessments which she carries out as iNTACSTM Competent Assessor (ISO/IEC 15504) for Automotive SPICE. Her book „Software Engineering nach Automotive SPICE“ (German) is listed in one of the top positions in the Amazon bestseller  ranking for the relevant book category.

As Head of the special interest group “Software Test” at the Arbeitskreis Software-Qualität und -Fortbildung e.V. (ASQF, Association for Software Quality and Further Education) she supports an efficient transfer of knowledge and a continuous exchange of experiences. In addition to this, she lectures in software testing at the Erlangen-Nuremberg University in order to give students the know-how and skills required for their careers.

Since March 2009 Klaudia Dussa-Zieger is Chairperson of the DIN working committee „System and Software Engineering“ and is involved actively at an international level in the development of standards. The development of the new testing standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 is only one of the topics she is in charge of in this context.
