Workshop: Leading Agile Testers – Successfully Making the Leap

There’s a gross 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 strategy. There is a strong need to testing leadership in agile organizations, just not the way we’ve always approached it.

In this workshop, we’ll explore what excellent test team leadership look like. First we’ll explore the aspects of self-direction. 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’ll explore how to build (or rebuild) your traditional test teams for agility. Then we’ll also get into how to create an Agile Testing Community of Practice and how to guide your organizations journey from a quality and testing perspective. We’ll use out 3-Pillars framework as a baseline for assessing and continuously improving your quality. At the end of the workshop you’ll have a firm grasp of successful agile leadership practices.

Session Takeaways:

  • At the end of the workshop you’ll have a firm grasp of successful agile leadership practices.
