Karen N. Johnson

Talk Title

Project Doom. Lessons learned as a QA Manager


Karen will share a past project experience that came with several challenges – lack of clear objectives, shared understanding of the technical aspects of the work and SMART goals. She will highlight observations and actions she took in an effort to prevent project failure.  The presentation will offer some context of the project but will not identify the client. The failure points will focus on lessons learned and how Project Doom changed the way she now approaches work.
