How do you as a leader upgrade your team’s skills and technical abilities and still meet your daily release deliverables—without bringing in external resources? Join Jennifer Scandariato as she shares her journey in transforming her company’s QA department into a test engineering center of excellence, where manual testers are now automation engineers who apply automation technologies to expedite and streamline the testing efforts.

Jennifer shares step-by-step strategies and lessons learned about how she invested in her people by creating new job paths and introducing boot camps for training—all while advancing her department’s ability to accelerate application delivery.
