    Many organizations struggle with transforming from the old style teams consisting of members with specialized silos of skills into Agile teams consisting of generalized specialists.  This results in sub-optimal Agile adoptions in Agile/Scrum environments, which is where most organizations transforming to Agile are advised to start.

    We will start with a look into the real role of QA in the organization, and where they truly add value in the production of quality code to allow the business to move forward. Piggybacking on the role of QA, we will then speak to exactly what QA needs to do to add value to the software development process, and how they integrate in the DevOps model that is a contemporary solution to an age old issue.  And, finally, we will speak to some uncomfortable truths, and draw conclusions into the skills that Agile Testers must be expected to master to allow the organization to pivot successfully into a truly Agile development group.

    Agile doesn't improve quality. Can we release a world class product?

    There is a common concern by management that Agile doesn’t make a difference to the product quality. How do we release a product of world class quality?

     Problem is two folded:

    1. 'Definition of Done' is not created with Quality in mind, nor is it measured against the quality set at the beginning of the project.
    2. Quality Goals and subsequent adherence ensures quality is met and not just meeting 'Definition of Done' (DOD) criteria. For example DOD may be met, but quality may still be poor if not managed appropriately. How – lets discuss this through the session.

     Once the quality goals are defined for a project, Definition of Done should align with these quality goals.

    At McAfee, we have released world class quality products through Agile Methodology and Quality Best Practices together. One exceptional method we practice is by defining and tracking "Effective Quality Goals" for each sprint, and at every release.

    By driving agile projects through quality goals, we have products with ZERO defects deferred / logged by customers, 90+% code covered through automated test, 70% defects found early through development practices. This magic was not in just one project, but close to a dozen projects in the last 3-4 quarters.

    In this presentation, we will explain about how we changed the paradigm in the last 2 years and released world class quality products in a short span of time.

    As more and more organizations are transitioning to agile, it’s inevitable that Agile testing is not just a concept any more. It is also not just about placing a tester in every team. What is so radically different now? How to be successful at agile testing? How to be an effective cross-functional team that embeds and honors all specialties including testing?

    In this presentation, I am going to share my teams’ success with Agile testing and how we incorporated these 3 aspects – people, process and tools/techniques. This talk will benefit any members in an organization who has a stake in the product quality. It is also highly beneficial for those agile testers (from aspiring to veteran) to understand the 3 main aspects as it relates to testing and why we need to embrace- not just one, not two, but all these 3 aspects to be successful in Agile testing.
