Today, many organisations are pro-Agile and operate on multi-technology platforms. That warrants every member of a team to understand and to be able to contribute to product quality, beyond the traditional way. To build quality products and deliver them on time without compromising on quality, it is important to understand the notions of quality and the relationship between them.
After some years of research and experiment, Lalit has developed his framework called QCSD – Quality Conscious Software Delivery. He believes that investing in testing education for the whole team, practicing testing as a team, and using that learning to foster the quality mindset, enabling people and processes to support quality work at every stage is the way to go forward.
In this highly interactive workshop, participants learn how to step up their game and enable the whole team testing to support whole team quality, through exercises, discussions, and experiments. And succeed with it. Lalit shares his experiments around getting the whole team to engage in quality-related activities, challenges he faced and how did he overcome them.
