The testing is dead, long live the testing!

Testing is an outdated mode effect, which become a distinct activity embedded in development.
No more need for test managers or for Test Competence Centers since it is the responsibility of the whole team and as long as 5-legged sheep profiles are sourced and automation is excessive.
Does it really work in the context of a large and complex organization? (geographically dispersed matrix organization)
How exiting “traditional” roles of testing professionals would compose the lineaments of new testing face?
And on the top, how to act as catalysts for Testing @scale transformation to accelerate value creation?
Chekib has over 18 years’ experience in the management of QA teams. He joined Société Générale Corporate & Investment Banking for 13 years where he held different management roles related to a mixed sourcing and worldwide team’s context.
Taking benefits of a dynamic and constantly changing environment with regular challenges of time to market, costs pressure and production quality, Chekib has been as well acting on structuring programs for IT transformation related to continuous delivery and Agile@Scale.
Chekib is currently heading testing practices for SGCIB with the ambition to scale up both the global testing maturity and the staff autonomy.
