* Analyze functional requirements and define the test approach for features and feature areas by identifying needs for test data, environments, and tools.

* Have a fabulous lunch with people you respect and admire. Enjoy your coffee and drinks …or 10 because, hey, they are free!
* At the end of a release, celebrate the fact that your and your team’s work is indeed awesome and unspeakably incredible, take some time to do some research, train in a new technology or even play a game – em, we mean participate in a team building exercise – with your team.
