Lean Software Austin July Meeting - Rework: Testing, Teams, Productivity, and the Purpose of Quality

This month's chalk talk addresses a hold-over from recent traditions of software development organizational behaviors that keeps even experienced agile teams straddling a methodological conundrum, with one foot in agile and one foot in waterfall.

The traditional hand-off between implementation and testing is a phase-based workflow that causes and perpetuates waste and reduces productivity.

Challenging the fundamental assumptions of this kind of organization will help us to explore alternatives, and to explore Lean production imperatives that inevitably lead to very different conclusions about how teams and process are organized.

Lean Software Austin meetings are chalk talks that and discussions facilitated by leaders in the Austin software community with a depth and breadth of experience in software engineering and development, and who exercise a deep commitment to all aspects of the software craft.

Lean Software Austin appreciates Overwatch Systems' continued support and sponsorship of the group!
