You just found out that your QA Automation team is being combined with the performance testers – it’s a huge promotion and you’re expected to know what to do right outta the gate. Has it happened to you? The first challenges are just understanding what the objectives are for the effort. Then you need to see if the tools are right, the process is right, the reporting channels and communication is right, and the stakeholders are on-board and the team’s training and skills are right. Whew! That’s a lotta stuff to get right, am I right!?! Hopefully this session will help you to learn an approach that I use for designing a performance team strategy. We’ll cover alignment to stakeholders, dependencies and objectives. We’ll cover tooling and skills. We’ll cover career paths and personalities. Everything you need to get right with your new role in performance.
