Transforming a QA department to a QE department requires a strong focus on elevating the skill set of the QA team. It requires a commitment to quality going beyond testing to break. Instead, we want to train the team to engineer quality into the product from the outset.
Some (but not all) of the items included:
- Performing Exploratory Testing
- Performing “Ility” testing (usability, scalability, etc)
- Writing Test Automation
- Writing effective Acceptance Criteria and Test Scenarios
- Working in Gherkin
- Designing for Testability
