E-1  QA for Today and Tomorrow - Challenging the Status Quo to Create the Future of QA

QA Professionals have the ability to impact quality in many different ways. Our role in interpreting, developing and applying standards and best practices is forever evolving.  This  interactive session will provide an opportunity for all QA Professionals, regardless of how long they have been in QA, to discuss ways to re-define the ”QA Experience” of the future. QA Professionals will need to adapt to changing communication methods and styles to meet the needs of their customers, whether internal or external stakeholders. We will spend the first part of the session discussing current thinking and challenge the status quo of ‘We have always done it that way so that is that is how we will do it now’.   The second part of the session will include 2 panels – one will be a panel of representatives with many years of varying QA experience and the other will be a panel of newcomers to industry. These panels will provide their perspective on issues currently facing the QA Professional, expected future challenges, and engagement of new people into this profession. We will discuss ways to incorporate existing and new ideas on how to address these areas.  QA will always be a profession where we are rewarded for our expertise – let’s help each other figure out to how continue that today and tomorrow.
