Assessing Agile Quality Practices with QPAM

Enabling Teams to Improve

About the Book

This book is intended for consultants, facilitators, delivery teams or organizations who are interested in determining where their team(s) stand from an agile quality practices perspective.

It provides a deeper view of what it means to truly deliver successfully in an agile way. Janet and Selena introduce a quality practices assessment model (QPAM) that considers dimensions and quality aspects for behaviours and practices within teams and organizations. Consultants, coaches, managers, and even team members learn what high quality looks like for feedback loops, testing, code quality, culture, and more.

The reader is invited to dig deep to reflect on the quality of their products as well as the quality of a team's agile processes and those of the entire organization. The model enables teams to assess where they are, and what practices they may want to improve.

Without quality, there is no value.” ~Selena
