Creating a Quality Engineering culture within your team 
Ian Glenn Chandler, Agile Quality Coach, Sogeti Netherlands

Quality is something that every team wants to achieve in their product. And in the teams we have the tester for maintaining the quality. But within Agile ways of working, teams are responsible for maintaining the quality, not only the tester. Therefore we need a Quality Engineering culture within the team. But how do we create such culture? In this presentation, Ian Glenn Chandler will share his story how he created a Quality Engineering culture in his team. He will share his lessons learned and takeaways of his journey.

Key takeaways of this presentation:

  • What the benefits are of having a Quality Engineering culture
  • Lessons learned of creating a Quality Engineering culture
  • Role of the tester in a Quality Engineering culture
