QUALITY ADVOCATE - WHAT IT IS

Quality advocacy is a practice generally led by QAs within the team, with a continuous emphasis on ensuring quality at every step throughout the software development lifecycle. QAs advocate for quality by posing various questions and providing consistent feedback to bring in a default quality perspective in the team's work. Once the quality mindset is established by all team members, it significantly reduces costs of software development by finding the issue early in lifecycle.

 

Another positive outcome of quality advocacy is that every team member becomes actively engaged in continuous process improvement, which is a crucial goal for any team.

At TestersPilot, our QAs are experts in establishing such processes. They possess the knowledge and experience to ask effective questions and feedback that should be shared with the team, enabling each member to actively contribute to building the right product by following the right set of practices.
