    Agile QA: Welcome to the front of the line!

    About the Topic

    Many quality teams find themselves understaffed and only brought in after development has taken place. This leads to rushed quality outcomes and QA perceived as a bottleneck to delivery. What can a quality team do to get to ensure best-in-class product quality while not being seen as a barrier to agile speed of delivery? Robert Woods, Organizational Effectiveness Consultant, will help define what Agile quality really looks like and provide techniques that an be applied immediately to help ensure quality as a feature, not a luxury.

    Key Learning Objective

    • How to get into the product discussions upfront.
    • Testing before developing to create speed AND quality.
    • What is considered just enough from an Agile Quality perspective.
    • How to sell the actual costs related to rushed quality outcomes.

    How to make a TCoE as good as Top Gun

    About the Topic

    Over the last 10 years or so, reports appear every now and then about how the Test Center of Excellence (TCoE) model is obsolete, doesn’t work with agile, or just doesn’t work at all. Having set up several successful testing organizations myself (some called TCoE’s, some not), I feel it’s too easy to blame failure on the TCoE concept itself, while in my experience, it’s often a range of underlying challenges that contribute to the lack of success – challenges that the proposed alternative solutions (QA Teams, Quality Competency Centers, Centers for Enablement, etc.) may also fall victim to if they are not addressed. This talk will explore some of these challenges, and explore what, if anything, you can do about them

    Key Learning Objective

    • Learn about early CoE's
    • Learn about some of the common challenges faced by test organizations
    • Gain some insights on how to address these challenges
