Architecting an Agile Test Transformation Program

Add to calendar

Transitioning test automation efforts from traditional to agile approaches is challenging because it requires cultural, process, technology, and people changes to create a sustained mindset shift and drive desired outcomes. Join Klaudia Breslavets to learn how a complex organization scaled its test automation transformation and “shifted left” enterprise-wide to support agile practices and continuous delivery. Learn the specific ways Vanguard fueled the transformation and structured its program to help IT delivery teams achieve faster speed to market, greater confidence in their tests, shorter cycle times, and higher software quality. Whether you’re a direct contributor or a testing leader, you can benefit from the lessons learned from this applied case study in test automation and continuous testing. Bring your questions and curiosity; learn how a large organization shifted left and gain practical ideas for shaping your own agile test transformation journey.
