Brief Bio of Stacey:
Stacey Hack is currently the Principal Testing Director at SGI. In her role, she provides direction and improvements in the testing discipline. She has managed project managers, business analysts and quality analysts in the past.
Previously while working at LAI, the organization was chosen as a pilot to move from Waterfall to Agile. Agile coaches were brought in to train Stacey to become the trainer and be instrumental in the transformation. With over two years of training in transforming an organization she has successfully helped transform team by team over to Agile utilizing scrum. It started with one team adopting scrum then successfully moved all teams and all projects to scrum including bringing in automation testing. Additionally, after four years carried out as change manager a re-organization was implemented at LAI to move to fully cross-functional scrum teams that includes DevOps. Further, the larger organization is moving the portfolio to a SAFe set up. This allows for much more flexibility at the team level and for greater co-ordination between the teams. Stacey helped bring increased visibility up the organizational chain on what the teams are working on and the direction they take.
