📼 You must develop a robust quality assurance process to ensure you consistently deliver the best products. Play this video to get three top tips that can lead to an improved QA process. You'll hear from Rituja Donadkar, Lead QA Analyst at Work & Co, who shares her learnings throughout her career as a quality assurance professional.
📼 Tips for developing a robust quality assurance process - #1: Make the quality of your product a priority. People are increasingly expecting great, seamless digital experiences. When they don't get them, it can impact brand loyalty. At Work&Co, they believe in building products that are designed in a way that is simple to understand and interact with. This is the foundation for why Work &Co has a fully dedicated quality assurance team. Great products are found through continuous trial and error until arriving at the most successful result.
📼 Tips for developing a robust quality assurance process - #2: Involve QA members in every phase of the project. At Work&Co, Rituja considers it’s best to include QA members as early as the tech discovery phase, enabling them to have transparent conversations about processes that should be implemented on the project. This time is ideal to discuss configuration management for the project by meeting with your team and figuring out basic criteria. The next phase is the design phase. Having QA involved in this stage allows the team to identify missing flaws and accessibility issues before the next phase begins. The third phase, development, involves writing test cases and validating user stories. An extremely important factor to discuss here is risk management. It is the QA professional’s responsibility to collaborate with other team members to identify, assess, prioritize, monitor, and propose mitigation strategies for any risks that may appear. And, last but not least, is the delivery and support phase: user acceptance testing is also a part of this phase.
Tips To Develop A Robust Quality Assurance Process - #3:
Continue to evolve processes. To remain knowledgeable as technology evolves, research and experimentation are a must. Along with working on projects, QA team members also work in smaller groups to research, experiment, and document new tools. Learning and evolving is a part of their structure. At Work&Co, the QA team frequently gets together to sync on what's working and what needs to be changed.
