This webinar is for software and systems engineers, project managers, quality engineers/managers and anyone else wishing to improve quality in their products, processes, & organisation. Fostering a quality mind-set can be achieved by the establishment of quality management as a cornerstone of professional development that adds value to the software engineering profession, and IT in general, through the following initiatives:

• Developing and elaborating software engineering as a leadership discipline with quality management as a foundational competency,

• Enabling software engineers to develop and expand the skills to manage process quality and increase profitability,

• Considering the organisation as a system, fully integrating the process, the person and the job description,

• Raising the level of professionalism, corporate and technical influence, job satisfaction and the career path trajectory.

This webinar aims to address quality management as a leadership and management discipline, as applied within software engineering specifically, and IT generally. This follows the approach to quality management described in the works of Deming, Crosby and Juran, but limits the application to the IT and software engineering disciplines.

As such, quality management is distinct from other aspects of quality such as quality assurance, quality control and acceptable quality levels. Quality management is also distinct from the software engineering disciplines of verification and validation of systems.

Dr Kennedy will also address the connections of quality management to other areas of IT/software engineering, notably systems thinking and organizational leadership.
