When developing and delivering large, complex systems it can be all too easy to focus on features and overlook software qualities or “non-functional” requirements such as security, scalability, performance or reliability. As agile spreads across your organization and as your systems grow it is even more important to pay attention to quality concerns and coordinate the delivery of features along with necessary architecture and system infrastructure work. This session introduces techniques and practices for interjecting system quality specification and related architecture, design and testing efforts into your projects and programs while being more agile about it. We will present several activities and options for coordinating work among teams and weaving quality-related items into your projects and programs based on architecture risks and complexity.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand how quality-related activities can fit into your agile processes and programs
  • Options for planning and managing architecture related tasks based on risk and complexity
  • Exposure to agile landing zones and techniques for monitoring system qualities
  • Awareness of important roles QA and architects play in making quality visible and ensuring incremental delivery of qualities
  • Knowledge about how QA and architects lead quality efforts and work with product and program management and delivery teams
