Role and Responsibilities
Examine the acceptance criteria and specifications provided by the Product Owner (PO) for user stories and identify any gaps or deficiencies, then provide a comprehensive report.
Review and validate the QA process followed by the QA team. This includes examining test plans, test cases, test scripts, and other QA-related documentation to ensure they are comprehensive, accurate, and effective.
Participate in the defect identification process by reviewing bug reports, analyzing issues, and verifying their accuracy. Collaborate with developers and testers to reproduce and understand the reported problems, ensuring that they are appropriately logged and tracked for resolution.
Proactively identify areas where the QA process can be improved, both in terms of efficiency and effectiveness. This may involve suggesting changes to testing strategies, recommending the adoption of new tools or technologies, or proposing process modifications to enhance productivity and quality.
Collaborate closely with the QA team, development teams, project managers, and other stakeholders. Clear and effective communication is essential to discuss findings, provide feedback, and address any concerns related to the QA process. Also, participate in meetings and presentations to share insights and recommendations.
Document findings, observations, and recommendations in detailed reports. These reports will serve as a reference for the QA team and management to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the QA process. Also, contribute to the creation and maintenance of QA-related documentation and knowledge base resources.
