A leader sets an example and inspires others to follow and then to lead in their turn. You don’t have to be a manager to be a leader—but if you’re not also a leader, you can’t be a good manager.

• What does it take to be a leader?
• Where do exceptional test leaders focus their energies?
• How can you get to be an exceptional test leader?
• What special skills or personal qualities distinguish a context-driven test leader?

Inspiring testing means much more than getting a team to follow you. It means setting an example with excellent work. It means helping others to grow their leadership capabilities and fostering teamwork that will enhance the effectiveness of your whole project team. It also means earning credibility, so that managers and fellow team members understand the value that context-driven testing delivers, and the importance of the information your testing uncovers. You can shine as a context-driven test leader even if you are the only tester on your project team.

In this full-day interactive workshop, we’ll examine the key focus areas for test leaders, and work together to identify the skills and personal qualities essential for exceptional test leadership.

You’ll have an opportunity to practice solving leadership problems, to assess your leadership aspirations and potential, and see how you can become the leader you want to be and bring benefits to all the projects you work on. 

This workshop is for testers, test managers, test leads—anyone who wants to become a leader or a more effective leader.
