Agile North East is a group for people involved in developing software to discuss Agile Development Methodologies. We will try to meet every month in the centre of Newcastle for a combination of talks and agile related activities. Anyone with an interest in Scrum, Kanban, XP or anything similar is welcome.
Shifting in all directions: Get rid of your QA column
There is so much talk about shifting left to improve speed and feedback loops, and yet many team that say they are doing it still, for some reason refer to QA/Test as a phase to the right and reflect this on their team boards.
In this talk I'll discuss the impact this can have on a team's culture, working practices and an individual's behaviour mentally and physically, and what it does for delivery.
We'll also discuss a different approach that teams can take which focuses on shifting in all directions and helps to improves collaboration, speed and quality.
