In this book, I explore how quality plays a role in all of the software development activities. It takes a deep dive into quality by listing the relevant factors of development and management activities that drive the quality of software products. It provides a lean approach to quality by analyzing the full development chain from customer requests to delivering products to users.
I’m aiming this book at software developers and testers, architects, product owners and managers, agile coaches, Scrum masters, project managers, and operational and senior managers who consider quality to be important.
Why this new book on quality
I published my first book on Valuable Agile Retrospectives in 2013. This book – Getting Value out of Agile Retrospectives – has become a huge success. It has many readers all over the world and has been translated by agile teams of volunteers into 13 languages already.
This new book started from the blog post series What Drives Quality which is based on the research that I did with the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) and my extensive experience working as quality and
process manager/coach in large and small organizations.
A book on quality should be practical. It should help readers to improve the quality of their software and deliver better products. It should inspire them and give the energy to persevere on their quality journey. What Drives Quality tries to do just that, and more.
With plenty of ideas, suggestions, and practical cases on software quality, this book will help you to improve the quality of your software and to deliver high-quality products to your users and satisfy the needs of your customers and stakeholders.
