Transforming Your Testing Organization: Embracing Test Automation

Add to calendar

Organizations are consistently looking to deliver high quality products in a quick, repeatable and predictable manner. Deliver more, deliver faster, and deliver quality! Often QA leaders are challenged to do just this while keeping the lights on, addressing process impediments, and dealing with pressure from sales and/or clients to continue standard operating procedure. In this session, Leigh will share her journey in transforming a testing organization from manual to leveraging test automation. She will discuss best practices in transforming testing teams, the challenges and pitfalls she encountered, and how to best avoid or overcome them. Participants in this summit will take home proven steps to transform a test organization into one that can successfully operate within a continuous delivery, lean environment.
