High-in-demand agile expert and conference speaker, Bob Galen, is quite popular on this year’s “STAR” agenda. Join Bob for round three at the following sessions and trainings throughout StarCanada 2017:
- October 17 from 8:30 am – 12:00 pm: While some organizations share the belief that there is no need for test management and leadership in self-directed team contexts, Bob believes differently. Join Bob for a half-day tutorial on Agile Test Team Leadership: From Concept to Product where you will explore the importance of exceptional test team leadership and what it looks like. Examine the aspects of self-directed teams and explore various critical leadership patterns that will help you excel in all areas of your agile journey.
- October 17 from 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm: Transitioning into an agile context can be awkward and uncomfortable for new beginners. Even those who are accustomed and well experienced in agile struggle to find the perfect balance between testing and quality. Regardless of where you are in your journey or the challenges you may face, we can all agree that the ultimate goal is value. Bob’s half-day tutorial, Agile Testing: Team Tactics that Deliver the Goods, will fill you in on all the tools, techniques, and the mindset you need to productively test in agile contexts. This tutorial will also examine various aspects of agile contexts (exploratory testing, test metrics and artifacts, user stories, behavior driven development, etc.) so you can provide your team with the ultimate knowledge to deliver with excellence.
- October 18 from 10:15 am – 11:15 am: When undergoing an agile transformation it’s important to remember to include all aspects of an agile team. In other words, the focus should not solely be placed on the development teams and/or their technical practices but should also include testing activities and test teams. Bob’s session, The Three Pillars Approach to an Agile Testing Strategy, will explore how you can align your organizations’ ideas and help you gain a deeper understanding of the critical components of the Three Pillars so you can leave with the initiatives to carry out a balanced agile testing strategy.
