Growing a Culture of Quality

Long ago there was a time where testing was purely seen as an activity by a siloed team who executed 1000's of tests towards the end of a project. In the modern world, this is still a very real situation in some companies, but on the whole, testing as a collaborative, continuous activity is much more the norm.

But getting to that stage is not easy. For some reason, there has historically been a stigma attached to testing as a lesser activity that slows down the release of a project. Changing such mindset is a huge obstacle to get over.

In places where testing is perceived in a negative light, it is possible to move forward, but it will take hard work to change the mindset of the people who don't know better. You need to use the power of persuasion, while coaching and building collaborative best practices that tech teams can buy into.

In this talk, I will walk through ways to get Testing at the table for discussions and build a culture of Quality, where the business accepts the value that testing brings and helps fight our corner when needed. This ultimately comes down to communication in the right ways and showing the value that Testing can bring to a situation.
