THE FUTURE OF QA LEADERSHIP

Software and Web Applications are becoming increasingly complex as user preference and demands are rapidly changing. The need for a supercharged QA team to consistently deliver the best customer experience is critical for companies.

There is a high demand for QA leaders who can navigate their way through uncertainty and successfully drive quality growth at scale in the ever-evolving industry. This includes ensuring the QA team always delivers the best user experience despite massive fragmentation, even while working in a remote setup where neither teams nor infrastructures are easily accessible.

In this QA Leadership Summit, you will get an opportunity to learn from the industry leaders on how they consistently achieve a pinnacle of user experience, creating new benchmarks for software quality and visualising the future of testing.
