Adam is a quality engineering specialist, and is passionate about continually improving how teams are able to rapidly deliver quality software products.
His career has seen him help transform and evolve the way that some of New Zealand’s most successful technology companies think about and approach quality engineering; with a bias towards the collective, the context-driven, and the pragmatic. He’s also regularly shared his experiences through speaking at conferences and meet-ups, providing training and coaching, and contributing to the quality community in New Zealand and around the world.
Adam currently leads the quality engineering practice at Xero.
Fostering a quality quality culture
Quality is a slippery notion, and not something that can simply be manufactured and measured. In that sense, it’s a lot like culture.
And just as culture is emergent from a peoples’ values and behaviours, quality emerges from teams’ principles and practices.
In this talk, Adam describes a model for shaping those principles and practices in engineering teams that can nurture a culture of quality engineering.
