Business Agility: Why the Language of Testing Shapes Success or Failure

Business Agility: Why the Language of Testing Shapes Success or Failure

As companies struggle to keep up with the market, the stress of the complexity to deliver internal and external facing capabilities and products has never been greater. In this session we discuss the critical nature of the language of testing as a key enabler for business agility. We will walk through traditional testing’s language and re-frame that language for agility.

    Sure wish this had been scheduled (like the Feb TISQA meetup) for the third Thursday in May... rather than two days before a major holiday weekend.
