The traditional time versus cost versus quality conundrum is faced by organizations trying to keep pace with the rapid pace of market driven changes today. The Quality Management/Assurance/ Testing organization is constantly under pressure to deliver low incident products in continuously shrinking development timelines. To succeed in the new marketplace, some enterprises need to establish world-leading quality assurance (QA) functions; others may need to implement small-scale change. Are you frustrated with how testing and quality is viewed within your organization? Do you feel that the expectations for performance from the development and testing organizations are not aligned with reality? Do you wish you had the mechanism to affect change or maybe even transform your organization? Whether you desire small changes or a truly transformative organization, affecting change utilizes principles and methodologies that can be applied. This workshop provides practical hands-on techniques for changing organizations.
When the workshop is completed, the attendees will be able to:
- Utilize relevant industry statistics on quality to influence organizational changes
- Utilize world class quality concepts and considerations to evaluate test organization status
- Apply organizational change concepts and activities to incremental or transformational changes
- Utilize knowledge gained in workshop exercises to improve test / quality organizations
