SAST Vårmöte/ Spring Meeting 2020-03-19 (Stockholm)

Theme: "Shift Happens - Learn new way of thinking and make a difference in the future organizations"

Today´s organizations are facing a new paradigm shift. Flexibility is no longer enough to deal with unpredictability, constant change and complexity. Organizations are moving from agile to Shift left, a mindset that unites DevOps and operations in a common value chain. The aim is to remove all old stereotypes about operation and production, create conditions for maximum delivery speed and break traditional silos with the help of autonomous feature teams.

In the Shift left approach, quality has the highest value and we see major changes in test and QA work. The traditional testing activities prevent organizations from delivering value and quality in line with their wishes, which in turn increases the need for new skills and technologies. We strive for systems that are linked to each other, are smart and have a coherent purpose. Therefore, agile teams need to take overall responsibility for end-2-end and business processes that cut through several systems. To create intelligent and integrated systems, the entire organization needs to shift its focus.

During this conference we will share experiences around the mindset "Shift left" and talk about how it affects testing and QA in the near future. We share tools for creativity and innovation and provide an overview of the need for skills to continue to be attractive under constant changes.

The program includes both presentations and workshops in both English & Swedish.
Workshops: Manual registration in the place!
