Welcome to the official web site of the Toronto Association of Systems and Software Quality.

This site serves as a source of information and point of contact for TASSQ members, QA professionals and interested members of the public.

TASSQ holds a Monthly Meeting in Toronto, Ontario on the last Tuesday of each month, except for July, August, and December.


Decisions are made based on the data available at the time of the decision. Some decisions can be made fairly easily and quickly but other decisions can take a long time. Senior leadership makes decisions on resourcing, budgets and projects affecting many groups within an organization based on data available to them.   There are many sources of that data such as Root Cause Analysis and counts of categorized defects available at the point of making the decision but the result can create barriers between groups as the vague nature of those generic categories creates friction. Join Jeremy and gain insight on how providing the right amount of data will allow positive decisions to be made for improvements across the organization.

Key Learning Points

Jeremy Berriault’s career in QA has spanned over 20 years across multiple industries that include Banking, Insurance and Medical. He is currently the Director of Quality Assurance for Pulse systems, an Electronic Medical Records software organization. Jeremy holds an MBA where he completed a research project on the attitudes and views Business and Testing groups have for each other. His research provided reasoning as to why each group would think the way they do and provided solutions that can help improve knowledge management between them which would in turn strengthen relationships. Jeremy’s main drive is to bring more attention to the value QA groups can bring to an organization, not just providing assurance of quality software, but also financial and efficiency benefits across the enterprise.
