Keynote: Shift Happens! Making the Move to Quality Engineering

If you’ve been in software testing for long, then you’ve likely seen the major shifts that the industry has taken. Shifts are excellent indicators that someone is paying attention and unwilling to remain complacent. However, shifts can be perceived as bad especially if the organization does not flex and adapt to changes.

Whether we like it or not, there is no denying that SHIFT HAPPENS!

In this keynote, Melissa Tondi will share the shifts that have been major milestones in the industry over the years. We will learn how that these shifts increased the view of software testing and the value that it provides In contrast, we will also review how these shifts have caused an imbalance in the overall role of testing. By identifying these shifts and their impact on our industry, the value of having a Quality Engineering role has emerged.

Join Melissa as she shares:

  • The operating model that emphasizes the value of the Quality Engineer by encouraging a balance between technical acumen and user advocacy.
  • What a high-functioning QE team looks like – by building an automated testing and exploratory testing strategy that’s successful and well-defined.
  • How to achieve balance while ensuring the role of testing continues to provide value and shift to QE.

… so that you, too, can plan for that moment when “shift” happens!
