QA as responsibility of Whole Team
Agile team is the group of different people, roles and individuals, but we all share the same goal = Deliver real value and enjoy it.
There was an idea that quality equals testing and only testers are responsible for it. Of course it is not true and Agile cleared out that testing itself is only measurement and it does not bring any quality itself. You cannot test Quality in; you need to build it in.
If Quality is understood as “Satisfaction of all stakeholders” than it needs to be responsibility of all of them. Each role and team member needs to contribute from its point of view and collaborate with others. Testing is still very important but it is only small piece of puzzle called Quality Assurance. So what are the other pieces?
I would like to share with you what is my vision of QA journey through the project life cycle, what the pieces are, how to bring them together, where to start, who is responsible for what and what achieve the point when whole team is responsible for Quality.
