What metrics will they focus on, will testers be user experts or technical experts, which activities will be impacted by AI and Analytics, will performance and usability testing finally be mainstream, and will there still be a role for crowd-sourced testing? Will there even be a “test” team and if so will it be part of development, operations, or marketing?

The room will be divided into two teams that will argue for or against four specific propositions about what testing teams will look like in 2-3 years’ time.
