DCG Selected To Present, "The Impact of Cognitive Biases on Test and Project Team,” at STAREast
Tom Cagley will present at STAREast, the premier event for software testers and quality assurance professionals
By: David Consulting Group
The presentation, part of the Personal Excellence track of the conference, will take place on May 7, from 3:00-4:00pm. Tom Cagley, Agile Practice Manager and Vice President of Consulting, will explain the cognitive biases that affect team thinking and provide takeaway strategies for how teams can work with and around these biases to improve team dynamics.
“While software quality is most often addressed through the use of various frameworks and tools, of which David Consulting Group offers a wide variety, it’s important to understand that our personal approach to work can also affect – both positively and negatively – the software we produce,” said Tom Cagley. “As developers and testers, we are constantly making decisions, most of which are affected by our personal biases, which affect how we perceive information and approach problems. Thus, once we account for our own biases, we can approach our problems with a more comprehensive perspective, thereby improving our work products and the overall culture of the workplace.”
This year’s conference will take place at the Rosen Centre Hotel in Orlando, Florida from May 4-9. STAREast features more than 100 learning and networking opportunities, including keynote speakers, tutorials, conference sessions, training classes and more. The conference is hosted by Software Quality Engineering, which produces several of the most respected conferences in the software testing and development industry, including the STAR, Better Software, and Agile Development conference series.
