Next Meeting at SQGNE

Testing Center of Excellence

Bob Crews, President of Checkpoint Technologies, Inc., and longtime SQGNE Sponsor

Wednesday June 12, 2019

Building and maintaining a cohesive testing team, all pulling in the same direction, can be a daunting task! Many organizations are establishing a TCoE (Testing Center of Excellence) to address the challenge. A Testing Center of Excellence is a centralized unit comprised of testing processes, tools and people operating as a functional group in order to provide testing services with optimal benefits across the test organization. A TCoE can present many benefits to an organization in terms of improved quality, lesser time to market and lower cost of ownership but it also creates a unique set of challenges. Join Bob Crews for this exciting presentation on strategies and ideas to create, or evolve into, a GREAT TCoE!

  • The difference between Traditional vs. Centralized Testing Models
  • Considerations based upon your SDLC (Waterfall, Agile, CI/CD, DevOps, etc.)
  • Proven strategies to build, or turn your existing TCoE into, a great TCoE!
  • Tips to create, motivate and sustain an excellent test team
  • The importance and incredible value of an Assessment
