The Art of Agile Testing Leadership: Finding Your Path
Testing leadership is evolving with agile and DevOps. The key to helping your teams transform and be successful in this new world is to know what skills you need to be effective—and, in turn, help your team navigate change. Jennifer Bonine will give you a toolkit for agile leadership so you can explore your level of acceptance of change, how adaptive you are, and strategies to help others adapt to change. She will provide exercises that enable you to discover your leadership style and understand your blind spots as a leader. During hands-on activities, explore with other participants how to influence and promote ideas and change, as well as how to inspire others to follow and invest in your ideas. You’ll learn how to partner across cross-functional teams and geographies and what metrics you should be measuring against as you adopt agile development methodologies and move away from a traditional SDLC. Leave with ideas of what will work for you and your organization, and with tools to ensure that you are an agile leader your teams will want to follow.
