PRODUCT MINDSET AND HIGH PERFORMING TEAMS
As we realize that product improvement is a relentless process, our conventional Project-based structure falls apart making way for a Product-based model, which is a collaborative, iterative, test-n-learn approach towards driving innovation.
High Performing Teams or High-Performance Teams (HPTs) that emerge out of this Product Model are a squad of highly-skilled, cross-functional, self-directed individuals with a shared vision and empowered by Servant Leaders focused on achieving the common business outcomes.
When the Product Mindset, Servant Leadership, and HPTs form a "syzygy" (perfect alignment), the results are celestial!

DevTestOps is a tooling-over process where the QA tester can be more effective when it creates test automation which can be run by developers too. This will bring a shift-left approach for the SDLC. Also, increases the reusability of test automation and free up QA resource which can be utilized in a different type of testing.
