What Do We Do With The QA Manager? w/ Joel Norman

Joel Norman is joining me for this episode to respond to a question I got in class recently about what happens to the role of QA Manager once all the QA folks have joined teams. Do we still need someone to manage QA if everyone in QA is part of a cross-functional, self-organizing team? If the answer is yes, what do they do day-to-day? If the answer is no, who is going to advocate for things like continuous integration across all the development teams?

Does Your Team Really Understand What Is Valuable? w Adam Weisbart

In this episode of the podcast Adam Weisbart and I take on the topic of how you can get clarity on value, how can you make sure your backlog reflects that understanding of value and how can you ensure the team has awareness of what “value” means to the organization.
