Best Practices in Transforming to World-class QA

Businesses today are looking at the Quality Assurance function as a primary enabler for quality led business differentiation. Leading organizations are transforming their QA functions to create increased value for business and customers. QA transformation involves identifying improvement opportunities to bring in newer  capabilities to enhance overall SDLC maturity to achieve top quartile performance. True transformation is achieved by challenging the current status quo, reinventing solutions through innovative approaches and by making a significant impact through business outcomes. This entails optimization of test processes, leveraging  best-in-class frameworks, and processes and tools. Embracing the shift requires a robust governance structure to drive seamless transition to higher levels of QA maturity.

  • Driving transformation through Best-in-Class frameworks and levers
