SAOpdx: Quality Cost Management

Standard Insurance Center Auditorium
900 SW 5th Avenue
Portland, Oregon 97204, United States (map)



The software quality industry needs to move away from finding, reproducing, documenting, prioritizing defects and validating fixes. We need to move to preventing defects. Ian will introduce a quality-based strategy that reduces total quality costs, increases profit, and makes QA work fun and rewarding based on work by Juran, Crosby, Deming, Krasner and his own experiences.

  Presenter: Ian Savage, McAfee
