Check out Software Process and Measurement Cast 274.  The SPaMCAST 274 features our interview with Jeremy Berriault.  We talked about testing, test professionalism and testing in academia.  Sometimes it is easy to forget that testing is one of the primary tools to manage quality in software development and that test professionals are a core part of any development department.

Jeremy’s bio tells us that his main goals within the Quality Assurance discipline are to ensure that the value is achieved across the organization and that it is a valued profession to be in.

He has had 20 year progressive career growth within the Quality Assurance discipline .Jeremy has a wealth of knowledge on QA processes, planning and continuous improvement. Working for large Canadian financial institutions he has a great appreciation of the risk mitigation a QA group can bring to an organization and their clients to ensure there are no financial or privacy impacts.  His long career has introduced him to many leaders and knowledge experts within the QA discipline that have helped increase his own experiences.

Jeremy is very approachable and is very collaborative because he believes that ownership of the processes does not sit with one individual. He enjoys working within a diverse group of individuals where everybody learns from one another and improves as a team.
