THE  FUTURE OF QA LEADERSHIP

Software and Web Applications are becoming increasingly complex to accommodate rapidly changing user preferences. Companies need a supercharged QA team to keep up with this pace of change and deliver the best customer experience.

There is a high demand for QA leaders who can navigate through uncertainty and successfully drive quality at scale in the ever-evolving, progressive industry. This includes ensuring the QA team always delivers the best user experience despite massive fragmentation, especially in a remote work setup where geographically distributed teams have limited access to physical infrastructure.

In this QA Leadership Summit, you can learn how industry leaders improve developer productivity to consistently deliver a great user experience, navigate through turbulent times and define benchmarks for the future of quality.
