Product Quality Does Not Start at the Finish Line: Improve Test Strategy to Create Better Products

Start Date:5/28/2020

Start Time:2:00 PM 

Duration:60 minutes

Too often, and even in this day and age, quality is still an afterthought. Calendly’s senior QA manager Erika Chestnut will share how she convinced her organization to think differently about quality, and the steps she took to transform QA from a review step into a significant source of value that has led to faster, higher-quality releases that are focused on improving the customer experience.

Learn the shift-left approach Calendly implemented to significantly reduce last-minute testing efforts for their multiple daily releases, to encourage collaboration and accountability, and to reduce test build times by more than half. 

You will learn:

  • How you can convince your teams to think about quality throughout the entire lifecycle of the product, from concept to development to delivery and beyond
  • Why QA teams should be involved as early as requirements gathering, and how making this shift opens up opportunities for QA to do more thought-based testing
  • How to improve collaboration with developers to create better test strategies that accelerate feedback loops and ensure alignment with defined requirements
