How to create an executable strategy to Build Quality in

The Built-In Quality (BIQ) concept originates from Lean and is one of the fundamentals in the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). Built-in Quality offers practices to ensure product increments meet quality standards and therefor results in trust in the quality of your IT solution. Important if you so want to adapt your systems frequently and go into production.

Implementing Built-in Quality is a challenge. Frameworks provide some practices, but they give little handhelds on how to apply these. An implementation roadmap is missing. In this interactive workshop we will learn how to plan BIQ measures that fit your organization. If you want to set up a continues flow of quality delivery, if you want to put your test improvements into context or want to extent your influence beyond testing, this is your workshop.

You will learn the basic concepts of BIQ and apply them directly. In small groups you will identify problems and goals and assess the Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC). Using the BIQ step plan we will analyze where in the SDLC we could start our improvements. Next, we’ll design a feedback loop and select the appropriate improvement measures. Special in this workshop is that will include the agile maturity of the organization to determine what practices will or won’t work. this results in a personal, tailor made improvement plan that fits the goals and the problems for the organization.

This tutorial is highly interactive. There will be small parts in which the BIQ theory is explained. But most of the time the attendees will work in small groups planning and refining feedback loops and BIQ-measures. And the end result is directly usable in the context of the attendees.
