Perfect To Fast: Transforming Quality Organizations in the Age of Hyper-Adoption
• What we'll do Need to deliver faster? Hyper-abandonment got you down? Come, behold innovations that give you the quality they deserve at the speed you want! The speed at which consumers adopt new products and technologies has blazed a path into an era of hyper-adoption. The consumer behavior trend of lower emotional investment and risk in product adoption and abandonment is helping to drive current market strategies. The strategies to combat this trend focus on speed of delivery to quickly test new product experiences with customers and to shorten feedback loops. The flip side of the paradigm is that too often quality becomes the casualty of speed, resulting in consumers abandoning new products just as easily as they adopt them. So how do you move fast and improve quality at the same time? Innovate! Traditional Agile test methodologies, automation tools, and development processes have given birth to a new age of quality engineering. In this session, we'll discuss: Hyper-adoption and hyper-abandonment and how these trends translate into product development Which aging philosophies you should consider avoiding and which have held up over time Automation techniques and tools that can shorten cycle times and yet facilitate higher quality What “building in quality” really means, how to do it, and how it can turn your stagnant velocity into fuel for the fire How to leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to supplement testing and unleash the innate creativity of your quality professionals Agile approaches for teams to take holistic ownership of quality Presenter Biography: Randall Hanson is a quality leader and Agilist who is redefining test methodologies for rapid software development in the evolving software industry. With nearly 20 years of experience in software development, Randall has played many roles spanning engineering, data transformation, and quality. As an evangelist for quality and agile methodologies, he concentrates much of his time coaching and providing guidance to the development community on quality best practices and innovation. Customer-obsessed and visionary, his often provocative methodologies contradict common practices and focus on influencing customer perceptions of product quality.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to DFW Scrum!

Scrum (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scrum_(development)) is a process framework that focuses on delivering the highest business value to the customer as early as possible through short iterative development cycles that allow rapid and repeated inspection of the project. Scrum can of course be used on just about any project (if it involves people and it has to get done, you can use Scrum).

Our goal is to help you do better today than you were doing yesterday. The best way to do that is through the collective wisdom and experience of the crowd (sprinkled with some industry experts).

Scrum is very simple to understand, but very hard to implement as it takes your problems and throws them in your face each and every day. We consider ourselves an organic group that is designed to tackle the challenges and issues you face regardless of your role in Scrum.

We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month reserving the quarters for industry thought leaders / mentors who can provide direction and insight to questions we might have raised in past meetings. We have hosted some of the industry leading experts such as Ken Schwaber, Martin Fowler, Kent Beck, Ward Cunningham, Jez Humble, Lisa Crispin, Jim Highsmith, Dave Thomas, Ron Jeffries & Chet Hendrickson, Alistair Cockburn, Jeff Patton, Mary Poppendieck, Esther Derby and Mike Cohn since our inception January 13, 2009.
