A Novel Approach for QA Scrum Teams to Improve Test Management Process
In our talk, we will introduce Siemens way of enabling better test management approach. We will explain Test Owner role, how it can be handled in test lifecycle, which responsibilities he/she should have, which measures should be taken to get the most benefit out of it and how it facilitates further improvements in all software development lifecycle (SDLC). In the end, we will also give the key message to the audience to think about the needed cultural change in quality mindset, as “Quality should be lived by everyone, not reached or governed just by some specific groups such as test teams!”
