Whole Team Testing with Janet Gregory - November 2017

We talk about "whole team approach" when thinking about agile testing, but many people still don't "get" it. In this talk, Janet talks more about what she means by whole team, and how understanding this basic concept has led teams to improve quality of both their process and their product. Testing activities help to build quality into the product and when the whole team actively contributes to solving testing problems, the whole team - along with the business and the customers - benefits.
