About our Presenter:

Most organizations equate Quality Assurance (QA) to software testing, or more specifically, test execution. There are incorrect beliefs that test execution is QA’s only (main) function in the software development process.

In reality, the purpose of QA is the mitigation of risk - risks to the team, to the department, to the organization, and most importantly, the risk to the users.  Mitigating risks is key to encouraging innovation and generating excellence in the products we deliver.  Effective test planning, perhaps at risk of becoming a lost art in the age of agile, is the foundation of risk mitigation within QA.

In this session, participants will learn how to develop a testing approach as a risk mitigation tool to expose and prevent risks and demonstrate the value of efficient and effective test planning to your company.
