The theme for this year's conference is the role of testing in improving productivity.

Everyone needs to pull their weight in an organisation. If a worker bee doesnt contribute to the hive, the entire colony is at risk (and no-one gets any honey). The same can be said of organisations whose departments arent contributing effectively to the business.

With insight from many industries, SQC UK will tackle this sticky subject head on and discuss exactly what the testing community can do to boost productivity.

Our two day programme focuses on this topic and being split between management and practitioner streams will ensure a focus on issues directly relevant to you.
