BUILDING A QUALITY ENGINEERING CHAPTER: PITFALLS TO AVOID AND BEST PRACTICES TO FOLLOW
Working in a completely Agile environment is a very rewarding experience, but how can we share best practices and learnings from the several Quality Engineers spread across several squads and tribes? Build a Community, a Chapter of Practice. Not only to share experiences but also to engage the QA, Architects, and Developers into a common goal: the whole team-based approach toward quality.
In this talk, Larissa will explain what a Chapter is, why it is important, and share her experience building a Quality Engineering practice into a completely Agile environment. She will detail how the idea began, how she engaged the Quality Engineers and Architects completely remote due to the pandemic, how the first Chapter and room started until getting momentum, and how to keep that momentum going. She will also talk about how engagement and sharing experiences improved the quality of the work the squads were delivering, and how common concepts and shared experiments were able to increase the speed of ramp-up for new squads.
After the talk, the audience will understand better what a Chapter is and have guidance on how to start it, avoiding the known pitfalls and focus on what works best for their context through engagement and technical excellence.
