The Importance of a QMO in World-Class Agile Teams

In today’s competitive environment, being the first to market is critical. But what happens when there’s a heavy focus on building teams and role changes that you place quality aspects of your transformation on the back burner. Your move to agility may run into impediments if you haven’t engaged quality from the beginning, or worse, they rush unfinished or buggy products to market. In our one hour discussion, we’ll talk about how organizations use an Agile Mindset and approach to transition from traditional ways of thinking to include a QMO when delivering quality products and solutions incrementally. We will explore the journey an organization takes for their quality approach to go from being ad hoc and manual oriented to an automated continuous learning approach.
