Event Description


Breaking the Bottleneck: Driving QA Transformation in Agile Organizations

12 Noon - 1 pm Weds June 19

Speaker Tanya Kravtsov identifies and challenges the bottlenecks we face as Dev and QA professionals. Tanya is the Senior Director of QA at Audible, a passionate speaker, and the founder of the DevOpsQA NJ Meetup group. She will present a webinar on, “Breaking the Bottleneck: Driving QA Transformation in Agile Organizations” on June 19, 2019, at  12:00 PM (EST)


Since Agile is based on continuous delivery, anything that breaks this continuity is considered a bottleneck. Often, QA is perceived as that bottleneck which prevents the development organization from embracing quality and results in production issues and ever-growing technical debt. In this webinar, Tanya will share her experience of driving QA transformations in Agile organizations, as well as explore various tools and techniques that can help identify true bottlenecks in the product development process and help to alleviate them. She will discuss how organizations can leverage automation, machine learning, and out-of-the-box thinking to stay on top of their technical debt and continuously improve.

Expect to Learn:

  • How to identify the bottlenecks in the Software Delivery Lifecycle
  • Tools and techniques that can help with addressing these bottlenecks and staying on top of technical debt
  • Innovative ideas of how to achieve the transformation that is optimal for your organization.

The webinar will end with a Q&A.
