Quality isn’t just a goal. It’s the whole point.
Many organizations today have implicit or explicit goals to deliver high-quality products. However, often the quality goals that organizations strive for don't always translate to practices that drive a culture of quality. In this talk, Erika Chestnut, Head of Quality and Process Engineering at Thrasio, will share how she partners with organizations and quality leaders to execute a more holistic, results-driven view of quality for their businesses. In addition, she will share concrete steps that she has implemented throughout her long career to help transform QA from an end of delivery review step into a significant source of value for your business. Because, as Erika strongly believes, quality isn't just a goal - it's the whole point.
