Start-up Mode: Wearing Many Hats as QA

Fabian Kempert

11:00-11:45 CEST Wednesday 14th June

Wearing many hats in start-ups is nothing new, and some of us might have had this opportunity, and challenge, at some point. I am still a Localisation Manager, Technical Communicator, HelpDesk Adviser, and QA Manager. I started as the only person in the company responsible for all these things and more.

Scaling up and hiring a team, commissioning and entrusting new hires with jobs & tasks I previously did – without micromanaging – was a challenge for me.

My talk is about how to wear these many hats and how to let go of the ones you outgrew, while making sure that knowledge transfer and delegating without micromanaging a team is achieved.
