On this Podcast, Mike talks to Nicola Lindgren about her article on the Ministry of Testing web site, Leading Test Teams When You’re Not A Manager

https://www.ministryoftesting.com/dojo/lessons/leading-test-teams-when-you-re-not-a-manager

They discuss the topic of Test Leadership and how you come to approach it without being in a position of authority, covering:
  • What is Test Leadership? Traditional vs modern definitions
  • Test Leadership in action - good and bad examples
  • Are we not de-facto leaders as we are responsible for the piece of work that we deliver, to a larger team (the test team)
  • Informal Test Leadership
  • Test Leadership - support, skills and training needed
  • Positives and negatives of test leadership
  • Final thoughts and words from A Seasoned Informal Test Leader
