What do Leaders Need to Know to Succeed with Agile Testing - Janet Gregory
When organization transitions from using phased and gated methods to using agile, general training is usually provided for the teams, but very little information is provided to leadership about what that means for testing - to the team or to the organization.
Teams often suffer the consequences because the leaders don’t understand their role. In this talk, the speaker shares their experiences in what leaders need to know about testing in agile to help their teams succeed and also how teams and individuals can help influence and share that message with their leaders.
For example, testers may struggle because they are treated as “plug and play” resources, assigned to more than one team while being expected to be equally valuable to all the teams. This sets them and their team up for failure since they cannot be in two places at once.
Transitioning to agile is more than a process change, it is a mindset change – not only for the delivery teams but for everyone in the organization, especially the leaders who are expected to set the vision for the company. Learn how to influence your leaders as they shift their mindset to building quality in.
