Quality is a Team Responsibility

We are told that when quality is owned collectively, as opposed to being gated by a tester it can improve overall quality. Teams begin to contribute to quality through testability, identifying design flaws in stories, and testing earlier in the delivery process.

But this only scratches the surface of what can be achieved.

If we think of software delivery as a journey to achieving desired business outcomes, quality is the GPS that shows us where we are and how far we have to go.

This talk looks at some ways to better understand quality, what it means to you, your team and business partners. It looks at ways to frame quality in terms of business outcomes to help us keep on the right track. It will show ways to visualise quality so everyone can see where we are on our journey.

Do I believe testers have a place in this future? Absolutely! In fact, I think the role of a tester is needed more now than ever but perhaps not in a way we have traditionally seen our roles.

A must for anyone moving to contemporary engineering approaches.
