Workshop: Leading Agile Testers – Successfully Making the Shift

There’s a terrible error being made today across many agile organizations. They’re assuming there is no place for test management and leadership in agile, self-directed team contexts. We beg to differ with this view and believe there is a strong need for testing leadership in agile organizations, just not the way we’ve always approached it.

In this workshop, join Bob Galen and Shaun Bradshaw as we explore what excellent test team leadership look like in agile contexts. First, we’ll explore the aspects of self-direction teams and the implications to your previous leadership styles. Next, we’ll look under the covers of Scrum and see where you should be engaging, and importantly, where you should give the team space. Then we’ll cover agile tools, planning & iterative execution, metrics, and reporting so that you have a solid sense for day-to-day agile operational excellence.

Next, we share a well-rounded set of critical leadership patterns that to help guide your personal transition to an agile mindset. And finally, we’ll use out 3-Pillars framework as a baseline for assessing and continuously improving your quality.
