Presentation delivered by Craig Smith, Adrian Smith with Dallas Thorneycroft at STANZ 2011 in Melbourne, Australia.
When Suncorp started down the path of rolling out its agile program over four years ago, it was viewed by many internally and the industry with much scepticism and angst, yet now it is approaching mainstream adoption in the industry. One of the key challenges of becoming agile was improving our approach to testing and quality. In this talk we will talk about why we had to change, why we had to improve the “speed to cool” in relation to testing, our challenges and approach and our blueprint for the “future tester” at Suncorp. Like our agile journey, our vision for testing has been regarded an ambitious, so join us to hear why we believe raising the profile, empowerment and skillset of testing is critical to our (and your) future success.
