Quality and testing strategy concepts for cross-functional team

Anna Royzman

Half-day workshop - in English

A cross-functional team jointly owns the quality of the product they deliver. In this workshop, Anna will guide your learning in defining both the quality concepts and the experiments that validate the quality claims. Exploring what "quality" means for various stakeholder groups, participants will learn how to select and apply testing methods and styles that fit best along the project and product maturity continuum.

Thought the hands-on exercises, the workshop attendees will practice identifying quality risks on various stages of product maturity. They will learn how to select most appropriate test automation strategies, how to leverage exploratory testing as a team activity, ways to prepare for live pilots and demos of the real product, approaches to refine test coverage based on customer feedback, and techniques for designing a production "safety net" test automation suite.

Also, participants will learn how to identify all available resources that can be used to assist in a reaching team quality goals (tools, skills, knowledge, etc.)
