S11-604: Thriving as an Agile Test Manager

Track: Agile Testing

Your organization has gone Agile (or so they say), and you are the Test Manager. What will you do? Perhaps you talk to some people or read as much as you can about Agile. When you do, you’ll find that there is little, if any, information about how a Test Manager fits into an Agile organization. Some people may even tell you that your role is obsolete! The good news is that a truly Agile (empowered, self-directed, successful, collaborative, and silo-eradicated) organization takes a long time to form, which means that many Agile organizations still benefit in having Test Managers. To thrive as an Agile Test Manager though, your role and responsibilities need to change as the organization does. Attend this session to learn how to evolve as a Test Manager as your organization goes Agile, and how to ensure you consistently add value for your company. You will leave with insights, techniques, and approaches you can readily apply when you return to work, so you can thrive as an Agile Test Manager.
