1-Minute Assessment: Quality Gates
Take today’s 1-minute assessment
- Does your IT organization have a standard naming convention for its quality gates? (e.g. DEV, QA, End-2-End, UAT, PRE-PROD, other)
- Do the delivery teams abide by those?
- Do the various functions who have a stake in the gates, like release managers, testers, and those who provision environments, subscribe to the same standard and coordinate their activities so?
Did you answer NO to any of these questions? If so, you might be seeing some thrash across a handful of service and process areas that you can fix, relatively quickly, for good return.
