Transforming Testing: Understanding & Creating a Transformation Roadmap

Do you want to transform your testing? Of course, you do. Are you being asked to transform your testing? Of course, you are. Before you leap into a transformation project: Stop. Think. Do you know why you need to transform? Do you have goals? Do you know where you are headed and where you might end up? As I lead you through some important questions about test transformation, together we’ll explore the range of answers you might need to consider. These will be different for each person in the room, so we’ll discuss, use some problem-solving tools, and you’ll start to make your own transformation plan. It might be you personally that needs to change. It might be your team. Or, it might be your boss has demanded transformation and you can’t see why, or how, it is to happen. Join me to explore what transformation means for you and how you can approach it.

-You will take away your own transformation road map, and some tools to help you continue to plan, understand and execute the transformation you want to achieve
-You will be able to start using influence diagrams in your workplace and projects to understand interactions, processes, habits, and communication.
