Organizations have adopted Agile, Scrum, DevOps, CI/CD practices widely in order to increase their adaptivity. While doing so, they learn that it is impossible to speed up the IT deliverance without trusting the quality. Lean and SAFe have Built-in Quality (BIQ) as a core principle, but what does that mean for teams and organizations? In this presentation Derk-Jan will share patterns he encounters at various organizations. One of them is having little time to improve and automate testing. We’ll will discuss how quality can be improved on a team level, but we’ll also investigate how quality is organized scaled settings where teams need to collaborate on a single increment. In order to have quality Built-in, we need more than just good tests. Using BIQ maturity as reference, we can define various feedback loops in our development lifecycle. I will explain how to create these feedback loops and embed quality at various levels in the organization. BIQ takes more than just doing extra tests in the team. When we map test practices on the feedback loops, we get insight in which measures will make most impact. We have little time to improve, so let’s spend that time effectively. Join this presentation when you want to advocate quality and want to reach beyond the team.
- Understand that Built-in quality is a multi-level challenge that is gaining importance
- How to define quality feedback loops and the impact for the development and business
- What practices are defined by the scaling frameworks like SAFe on team level
- How can we create a test-improvement roadmap using BIQ-maturity
