Heady QA’s Key Principles:
We started the department based on the below four principles:
- Data-oriented Communication
- Bilateral Growth
We follow the Agile Scrum methodology, a system that focuses on incremental development, with each team aiming to deliver the highest quality components to the stakeholders. Members in an Agile team must take ownership of the team's deliverables within each “sprint.” QA tests at every phase in development, and QA signoff in any project is the last gate to prevent bugs from going into production. As a result, we’re responsible for the end product.
At Heady, unlike at many other organizations across the industry, the QA team and our opinions play a decisive role in a release meeting by honestly measuring the quality of the deliverables.
The QA team participates in all crucial project meetings, including brainstorming sessions, feature flow discussions, etc. The team is involved early in the SDLC to mitigate the number of bugs passing to successive phases. We work closely with the development team to identify the edge cases. We designed all the QA processes to maintain complete transparency amongst other team members.
We strongly believe in equality, transparency, and overall team effort. Everyone in the scrum team adds value to the product quality. As such, we take frequent feedback and suggestions from team members to improve the collaboration
Data plays a crucial role in assessing the quality of a product. We provide regular training to our team in order to enhance their data analytical skills. During each testing phase, the team collects all the necessary information. Multiple templates are made available to expedite the data representation process, maintain efficiency, and help accelerate issue resolution.
Each employee is a valuable asset to Heady, and it’s because of their dedication and quality deliverables that the company is growing. We take employee skills development very seriously, so we make sure each employee is supported and has the latest training materials to boost their knowledge. We have set dedicated hours each week for team members to spend on skill enhancement.
We encourage employees to do the certification to attest to their skills, so Heady has several programs to support both knowledge enhancement and certification attainments.
