In recent years, thoughts on the best approach for QA/Test Management have changed from a decentralised model to one that is centralised. Most organisations are moving to Agile and Dev-Ops as the time to market expectations are becoming shorter, but we recognise that the promised test automation benefits are still not always being delivered. So should we now be heading back to a decentralised approach?

Taking on board a combination of what history has taught us, insights from the 2020 Continuous Testing Report and Sogeti’s experience in the market, Ian and Folu will explore the answer to the following question ‘Should I have a centralised QA function?’ and provide their view on how organisations should organise their QA function to maximise the business value and efficiency within the delivery lifecycle.
