What is the webinar about?

Since joining an airline during a pandemic, myself and the QA teams have been on a journey.
From only being considered valuable to involved once development has been completed and PMs telling us they can’t afford us to be involved earlier to now being seen as advocates of Quality and being at the table for discussions about any technical changes.
The transformation has been tough, but we are now reaping the rewards for all our hard work.

This talk will talk through how we embraced the culture shift during the pandemic and used it as a vehicle to embrace a more collaborative way of working, bringing people together to discuss Quality and Testing and show ways to improve how we provide feedback on the products through more inventive ways of testing, changing the way we test for the better.

I’ll show how I used my passion for Quality and my external network to engage the QA teams across the company, empower and nurture the existing teams as well as bring new people in to disrupt the status quo and move us forward. Ultimately enabling me to advocate for the teams and raise the awareness of Testing/Quality across the organisation and enabling us to transform the way we work.

Did I mention our Test Parties? Find out more in the talk.

Key Takeaways:
  • Raise the awareness of the testing teams and the work you do
  • Change the culture by building allies across the business who advocate for you
  • Make the day-to-day work more enjoyable with collaboration and a sense of fun
