Track: Agile Testing
We are often deceived by just how ‘easy’ it is to be an effective agile executive. Is it really as easy as it sounds? This session will show you that while you do not need to be a SuperHero, you need to set a clear and effective vision along with a path for people to follow. Agile teams struggle when they do not understand the why behind the what. Join us and learn how to more effectively convey expectations and at what level you can expect to participate in order to be an effective servant leader. Today is the day you learn if you are doing enough to be successful! Unleash the Supermanager in You!
