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
