Key challenges facing QA leaders
Meeting quality goals when development happens at a pace presents challenges for QA leaders.
Testing is the last thing to wrap up before your brand or business can release its latest digital product or new features. So QA leaders are under pressure to deliver test results not only fast but also with absolute confidence in the results.
There are peaks and troughs development cycles – you need different specialisms and skillsets at different times. Ramping them up and down can be an impossible juggle for QA leaders. You need an easy way to flex the size of your team, ideally with quality resources at hand on demand.
Increasing automation coverage can reduce time to market, but not all tests are suitable for automation. You need to be pragmatic, choosing an automation approach only where it will bring real benefit.
Sustaining regression testing
As your digital product evolves, regression testing becomes more and more important, to keep established functionality in good working order. But investing your team’s time in regression testing takes them away from adding new, high-value features that enhance customer engagement.
Last minute changes
When project requirements change mid-sprint, it throws out testing plans and creates frustration for teams. QA leaders need extra QA expertise quickly, to assess what needs to change and to make it happen with minimal friction and delay.
