ReTestBash UK 2022 - Throw Out the QA Strategy Documents and Build a Ways of Working - Robbie Falck

Throw Out the QA Strategy Documents and Build a Ways of Working with @robbie.falck

Talk Description

Creating strategies and unifying an agile QA team can be difficult. Why not create a visual strategy? Or even better, a visual Ways of Working!

In this session, we will talk about the journey my team went on in transforming our agile processes, discovering our Ways of Working and figuring out how to stray away from long strategy documents that no one likes reading and focusing on visual strategies that everyone owns.

Takeaways

  • Understand what a Ways of Working is about
  • A whole team approach to QA strategies
  • How to create visual strategies instead of documentation

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the session and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.
