Vojtěch Barta has been in the area of Quality Assurance for 12 years. His motto is “Quality as the satisfaction of all stakeholders” when the whole team needs to be aligned with it.
He has worked in several different roles like QA, Tester, Lead of QA department, Business Analyst, Scrum Master, Mentor, Trainer etc.
Vojtěch has a good understanding of and experience with Agile development, mainly with Scrum and Kanban. He is open-minded and always thinks in the context of each particular project applying his experience to achieve the project goals without compromising the quality of the delivery.

Quality Assurance is far more than only testing. However, testing is an important piece of the puzzle. Vojtěch likes a balance between structured and unstructured testing when effective test automation is the key to success.
The main focus has to be on Defect prevention and delivering real value.

“Effective Reporting – How to make an impact.”
Johannesburg: 26 May
Cape Town : 28 May
Presented by: Vojtěch Barta
Fortunately, nowadays, we have tools that can provide us with dozens of reports in seconds and we can measure and visualize almost everything. But every coin has two sides. We often forget what is the purpose of reporting, why we do it and what impact we want to make. We just generate and deliver dozens of charts, tables, numbers but … … nobody reads … … nobody understands … … nobody cares … and most importantly – there is no impact.
I would like to share with you how to avoid such wasting following “simple” steps applicable to any reporting to give you clues on how to make a real impact.
I will explain this topic on the metaphor of antic temple – building with solid foundations, several pillars, and roof, that survived centuries.
Foundations of such building are
– Identifying and understanding stakeholders
– Understanding of numbers vs. verbs vs. adjectives
– Challenge of Context
Then we will talk about four main pillars
– Deliver expected information
– In the most effective way
– To evoke emotions
– That leads to an action
When finally our roof represents the measurable impact of the report.
