Driving quality in LEGO digital experiences as a competitive advantage.
LEGO is one of the most powerful brands in the world and LEGO products are symbols of quality. LEGO is on an important mission to inspire the Builders of tomorrow. The children of tomorrow are digital and to meet the kids where they are – in the digital space - the LEGO product portfolio is undergoing substantial digital transformation.
To sustain and further build on quality as a competitive advantage, LEGO must deliver digital experiences to the same quality standards as with their physical products. The way to get there, however, is very different.
The Digital Quality Department was recently established with the purpose to define and implement a proactive, data-driven approach to digital quality assurance. As the new faces of Corporate Quality, the team's primary task is to outline a LEGO Digital Quality Safeguarding Framework to build a common understanding of what good premium digital quality is.
Known for years as the company’s firefighters and bug hunters, the new strategic quality advisor role is rapidly changing the perception of quality assurance. The new heroes have replaced the uncomfortable firefighting uniform with a business suit and aim to drive quality as an important lever for innovation and growth.
In her speak, Head of LEGO Digital Quality, Trine Balle will address:
