Test Leadership for Business Agility

Mette Bruhn-Pedersen

14:00-17:30 CEST Tuesday 28th September

The Corona virus pandemic has put companies’ business agility to the test. It has shown how important it is to adapt to new conditions and respond to changes in customer demands.

To improve business agility companies are scaling agile approaches from team level to organisational level. How we approach quality and testing need to align with and support this change. If how we think and do testing are not based on the same mindset and principles as the rest of the organisation, we become an impediment instead of a catalyst for change and business agility.

In this tutorial we will explore some of the typical quality and testing challenges when scaling agile. The focus is on an organisational level and not on individual teams.

We will cover how to leverage existing agile practices to scale quality. One example is value stream mapping which can be a powerful way to address quality and testing challenges spanning multiple teams.

We will also discuss the need for strengthening quality as part of our company culture and who can help us achieve it.
