Learning by doing is one of the best ways to gain direct experience and in Quality Assurance, this is no different. We grasp the elements of success and analyze the culprits of failure, we all learn through what is done. However, knowledge does not always have to come from first hand experience.

And that is exactly what AUN-QA is going to share with you from the 5th Agenda of the AUN-QA IC 2023, “How Not to Do QA: When Best Practices Turn Sour”.
