STAREAST 2022 Keynote : QA-ccelerate!


Thursday, April 28, 2022 - 8:30am to 9:30am


Leandro brings a great adaptation of modern and mind-blowing topics to apply in the QA field. He will follow the guides and findings from the studies presented in the award-winning book "Accelerate" and adapt them to QA. Leandro will guide you through the definitions, attitudes, and changes in mindset needed to guarantee that your company excels and has a great future, especially when it comes to QA. These new elements and ideas on QA, brought from other business areas, will change your perspective on what QA should be and how it should permeate other regions of the organization. This knowledge will twist your concepts around QA as you learn to integrate concepts like Time To Release, Time To Fix, Cultural Leadership, Sustainable Work, Employee Happiness, and much more into your QA knowledge. Applying all of these definitions and integrations to your QA practices means you can use these critical indicators not only to indicate a successful company, but also one that grows exponentially in wealth, happiness, and impact.
