    Just to confirm - are you suggesting replacing defect finding with defect prevention? curious to know your personal experience with this approach and issues / challenges around same?

    Hi Meghana,

      Could you please elaborate on the take-aways for this session and how they will be achieved?  What are some of these take-aways?  Are they process, are they tools, are they discussion gates, etc?  Is this purely observational?  20 minutes for a tutorial seems really challenging as well.


    Thanks much,
