The Talk:

Traditionally, when talking about the quality of our software, of our product, we discuss how we can ensure a certain level of quality. In this context quality is seen as a minimum requirement. The business value of quality from this perspective is in the prevention of potential losses, e.g. by downtime of a platform.

Today, we can see that this picture shifts dramatically. More and more companies move to a devops culture and we can see the same “shift left” happening in the QA space. Likewise, today’s businesses need to react fast to changes in the market. New technologies emerge faster than companies can pick them up.

We want to talk about a high quality product in this context. The high standard in our products does not just ensure our business and mitigate potential risk. High quality in our software allows us to build better software faster. It makes today’s product more resilient to changes in the future. We change our perspective and do not think how to ensure a certain (minimum) level of quality. But how high quality enables our business.

About Nina & Finn

Nina and Finn care about high quality software from their heart. They are both analysts: Sometimes they analyses client business needs, sometimes teams and their processes and sometimes software. But they do this with very different perspectives:
While Nina is the business driver of the team, Finn is ensuring a high quality delivery.
Both want to share some of the ideas and concepts their teams developed while working on different projects throughout ThoughtWorks Germany.
