From September 28 through October 3, DCG will be at the International Conference on Software Quality and Test Management (SQTM).
SQTM is the only conference that focuses on advancing the test management and quality management professions by providing practical methods based on best practices. The conference is dedicated to helping all levels of management to adopt methods, technologies, and practices that increase productivity and produce higher quality systems.
The ongoing theme of the conference, "Practical – Proven - Feasible," focuses on what works in testing and quality management. Whether it is a new technology, technique, method, or simply a practice, if it consistently produces good results, it is presented at this conference.
What will DCG be doing there? Presenting!
David Herron, Vice President of Software Performance Management, will be presenting as part of the Quality Management track of the conference. His presentation, "Identifying Software Quality Best Practices," will take place on October 1 at 11:00am.
David's presentation will discuss how we should be defining software development best practices, and, more importantly, how an organization can identify their own best practices and what impact those practices have on improving performance and reducing defects.
Tom Cagley, Vice President of Consulting and Agile Practice Manager, will be presenting as part of the Agile track of the conference. His presentation, "Agile is from Venus and PMOs from Mars," will take place on October 1 at 2:00pm.
Tom's presentation will discuss how PMOs and Agile groups can work together cooperatively despite their inherent different roles. He will explain how it is possible to listen and integrate the different voices in the organization to improve effectiveness.
If you'll be at the conference (or if you won't be and have questions about the presentations or would like to see the slides), feel free to reach out to David and Tom to say hi or to arrange to meet!
To all those attending, we hope to see you in San Diego!
