As Digital is penetrating and disrupting every function of enterprise starting from HR, Finance, Supply Chain, including software engineering and development life cycle methodologies with the advent of DevOps, Digital tools like machine learning, AI and cloud technologies. The traditional SQA function is increasingly becoming irrelevant in the current context and the ask now from the SQA function is to be more real-time, high leverage of machine learning and artificial intelligence in SQA function to cater the speed, scale and flexibility demanded by the new age enterprises.

To address the above problem we have implemented a novel, first in the industry an SQA digital assistant powered by machine learning, AI and NLP technology. This intelligent SQA digital assistant caters all critical functions of the SQA in the digital IT enterprise. The major features of the tool include the following.

  • Project facilitation activities
  • Inspection and Auditing
  • Real time project dashboard publishing
  • Proactive early warning indicator on project risks and issues.

The presentation intends to demonstrate the live case study of the SQA digital assistant system developed with real time live examples illustrating the benefits of ML/AI/NLP in redesigning the SQA role in action for the new age digital enterprises.

      90 Mins
      Workshop
      Beginner

      Getting new teams to work together is hard. Really. Hard.

      Is it because there is so much hype around new Agile teams? Or is it because there is such a focus on “doing things right” (or “doing” Agile right), that we forget about the people actually doing the work? Regardless of the reason, before we can change the way people work... we need to focus on the things that are important for teamwork to work!

      We believe that the key to high-performance teams is creating an intentional culture that respects and embraces diversity - whether it be race, gender, class, culture, age, beliefs, language, skills or background. So join us as we explore the Team Canvas – sort of like a Business Model Canvas for teamwork - covering nine essential teamwork elements:

      • Purpose - Why we are doing what we are doing?
      • People & Roles - What are our names, roles and responsibilities?
      • Common goals - What do we as a group want to achieve together?
      • Personal goals - What do I as an individual want to achieve?
      • Team values - What do we really stand for and believe in?
      • Needs and expectations - What do each of us need to be successful in a diverse team?
      • Rules & Activities - How do we communicate and keep everyone up to date?
      • Strengths & Assets - What skills do we have in the team?
      • Weaknesses & Risks - What are the weaknesses we have, as an individual and as a team?

      We will walk through our agenda for team lift-offs, facilitation posters and preparation work required, materials needed, and facilitation tips and tricks. All packaged in a handy pocket guide, that you can use to explore tried and tested techniques for each essential element. We will also have an opportunity to practice some of these techniques during the session.

      Get ready to lift-off your team in T-minus 10... 9... 8...

      If you’re a software developer or architect who wants to play a more influential role in ensuring your software systems are optimised to support business goals, then you need to learn about the benefits and techniques of modern strategic domain-driven design.

      Many people think that DDD is about software design patterns, but that’s only a small part, and the least important part of DDD. In fact, Eric Evans wishes he’d focused more on the strategic aspects of DDD in his famous book (Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software) and pushed the tactical coding patterns to the back!

      Strategic domain-driven design is about truly understanding the business domain. It involves collaboratively modelling business processes using advanced modelling techniques, like Event Storming and Domain Storytelling, with domain experts on an ongoing basis.

      One of the core outcomes of strategic DDD is identifying cohesive modules, known as bounded context. Bounded contexts help you to create a maintainable, comprehensible codebase by isolating dependencies and delineating concepts that reference different classes of business value.

      In this talk, you’ll see many of the most effective bounded context design heuristics, recurring patterns in the wild, and you’ll learn how to facilitate those vital modelling sessions so you can lead the adoption of strategic DDD in your organisation.

      This experience report shares how ‘Skill the Gap’, a not-for-profit organization, is building the leaders of tomorrow using Agility and thus making sure the next generation have great places to work.

      We are doing this by upskilling ‘first job seekers’ from schools and universities in the core individual, team and leadership skills needed for Agility. This is done globally at scale and at no cost to the participants.

      What do these ‘new collar’ workers need in terms of skills that they are not getting today and how do they get them at no additional cost? We help bridge ‘the gap’ between what schools and universities deliver and what businesses need.

      57% of worldwide leaders say that it’s the soft skills that are more important than core competencies in this dynamic digital world. So, what are these skills and how do we plan to upskill 1 million first-job-seekers in the first 2 years of operations?

      “Team working is an individual skill” and training, coaching and equipping the next generation with these key skills before they enter the work place will enable them to be successful from day one and go on to be great leaders.

      We don’t stop there…we also place them at our sponsor organizations, thus giving them the opportunity, they need to shine. The sponsors enable us to give the students these skills at no financial cost.

      We will share our initial experiences and feedback, the 4 pillars of our curriculum and the 40 micro modules of magic.

      We use ‘training from the back of the room’ techniques, volunteers in 4 continents and a unique curriculum, to embed the learning and couple it with mentoring and coaching to deliver a unique learning experience that is scalable and is being currently rolled out in 6 cities from Miami to Melbourne.

      The million dollar question that everyone asks today is how do we foster collaboration and create a culture that nurtures team work, innovation, commitment and build great teams. How do we build an adaptive and learning organization?

      My talk proposal is a case study weaved in the form of story about how a leader formed a team of teams and transformed the system with net result as engaged and happy employees. The story uncovers bit by bit different models that we as change agents used to trigger and sustain the metamorphosis.

      Change even when good is often stressful. As humans we tend to defend status quo. Often there is a perception that people resist change but you dig further and uncover that what looks like resistance is often lack of clarity. What looks like laziness is exhaustion from frequent change in direction and strategy. What looks like people problem is often situation problem. With these insights how do we create happy and engaged teams? How do we initiate change, enlist support, enhance trust and finally make the change stick? My talk proposal is not just an experience sharing of how we started and led agile transformation but more of what models and principles we applied in doing so and sustaining the momentum.

      I am part of Agile Practice Group in Veritas and we run well defined experiments with clarity on what we want to learn, how do we measure it and what experiment do we need to start to do that. These experiments have created wealth of experience and epiphany moments. My talk will be sprinkled with stories from these learnings. For instance how I used the Five dysfunctions of a team model and scrum values to solve trust, commitment and accountability challenges in a team. How we used our own experiences and John Cotter’s model to create and sustain change. How we used the Karpman drama triangle to help ourselves and teams move from victim to victor mindset. We used the 11 laws of fifth discipline to direct and navigate our discussions to ensure that solutions that we are proposing take a unified systemic view and not piecemeal solutions that create separate set of challenges.

      My talk will also nudge the audience towards models that help build understanding of what can aid us work in a VUCAn (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) environment. As leaders we often focus on the technology aspects, this talk delves in to the powerful concoction of technology and people. I am a story teller at heart and have had successful experiences conducting trainings and sessions in Veritas.
