  • What are force multipliers?
  • Different types of force multipliers in software engineering
  • How to combine force multipliers in software development and testing
  • Learn the impacts of force multipliers on quality

Strategically combine force multipliers across your organization, team, and/or development lifecycle to improve quality and productivity.

Technology is an enabler that generally leads to improvements in our capabilities, performance, and cost effectiveness. As a result, technological advancements are often viewed as ‘force multipliers’, because they help us to produce or achieve significantly more using the same resources. In software engineering, development tools, frameworks, and platforms are usually the first examples of force multipliers that come to mind. However, these aren’t the only types of force multipliers that you can leverage in software projects. Join Tariq King as he walks you through different types of force multipliers in software engineering. Tariq will demonstrate how you can combine force multipliers to realize gains in productivity, without compromising quality. By taking a holistic view of the areas for improvement across your organization, team, and/or development lifecycle, you can strategically introduce various force multipliers over time to reap exponential benefits in quality and productivity.
