A4Q Congress presentation

Leanne Howard, ANZTB Board Member will be presenting Defects derail delivery.
Leanne has found that one of the key causes of poor quality, late delivery or even at its extreme cancellation, is DEFECTS.  Of course, there are other factors, but in this presentation, Leanne will focus just on defects.

The questions Leanne will discuss are:
  • What are the root causes?
  • What is the effect?
  • And what can we do about it?
Quality is the responsibility of the whole team, testers do not introduce defects, but they do find them.  Rather than focusing on defect detention, how can we move to defect prevention? This eliminates waste, yes defects are waste, supports building quality in and allows us to switch paradigms to one of providing confidence in the customer delivery.
