AITP Dallas, Wed., 4-23-2014, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm, BravoTECH
Speaker: Laura Franco, ASQ CSQE
Laura Franco has 35 years of experience in software development and in management best practices. As a senior leader, she has been instrumental in leading global organizations through the changes required to implement process improvements that are aligned with business objectives. She collaborates across the entire organization to optimize the results from the software development and release process with demonstrable quality, schedule, and cost savings while achieving strong, positive feedback from the process practitioners.
Topic: Inspiring Teams to Adopt Best Practices
The focus of this talk is how to introduce a best practice that is both effective at improving quality and endures under schedule pressures. Everyone injects defects. Only the developer or author of a work product is able to build quality into the finished product. How does a Quality or Process specialist inspire smart, tech-savvy Engineers to adopt an effective inspection practice that produces long-lasting results? Introducing a best practice that thrives requires a culture that fosters and expects continuous improvement. The learning experience must be practical and aimed at adult learners. Lastly, the infrastructure should make it easy to follow the process and collect the data to measure improvements. This presentation will discuss the ingredients for successfully inspiring teams to strive for better quality.
