Managing Quality with a Post-Covid Workforce 

Quality Engineering has forever changed because of Covid-19. The way we test, communicate, and even the relationship between business and customer has changed. Accepted best practices and norms were made immediately obsolete after March 2020 and we are now in a new era of distributed workforces, accelerated development, accelerated feedback, and new technologies replacing basic human jobs. 

Leading Quality Engineering in your company has just been made a whole lot more complicated.

Quality Engineering has become even more critical to your IT organization. We all need to improve as Quality Engineering Leaders, but how? What does Quality Engineering Leadership look like post Covid-19? What has changed? What challenges are on the horizon?

Join us on October 29 for a panel discussion with Quality Engineering leaders who are tackling this challenge head on.  In this webinar we will discuss:

  • What are the challenges and caveats in the post-covid work environment and how does it differ from the pre-covid world?
  • New career paths for your Quality Engineers that can benefit your business.
  • The new vision for Quality Engineering and how to get your teams marching in the same direction.
  • Discuss best practices we can incorporate while building globally distributed teams.

Watch Now!

We hope that you will learn and participate in this session. We anticipate a highly interactive, fun session.
