General Session: Dropping the Pitchfork – Improving QA Project Team Relations

Friday, April 24: 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM

We examine applications. We exploit applications. We break applications. It’s no wonder tension exists between QA and the rest of the project team. We are pretty close to a project team’s own personal devil (horns, pitchfork, and always trying to make people do things they shouldn’t). We need to distance ourselves from that stereotypical image. Using our roles in Waterfall and Agile we determine the impact our activities can have on various project team members. We identify the possible negative impacts and the changes to implement that improve the relationship between project team members, while at the same time improving the quality of the applications we produce.

Join Bryan and learn how to use Quality Areas to improve interactions and the overall view of QA and its processes.
