When putting testing into motion, coordinate with the product management team to synchronize testing with development, sometimes even testing items before developing them. Today, testing is no longer an afterthought, but instead an end-to-end process baked into every stage of development. With this testing mindset, your organization can deliver a more efficient engineering process and prevent time wasted on redeveloping platforms from the bottom-up due to foundational defects.
