Finding Your Voice During Agile Transformations

"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much." -- Helen Keller

Agile transformations can be hard, expensive, and confusing. Teams are restructured, people have different roles, and mindsets are expected to change quickly. Perhaps Agile was brought in to provide faster deliveries for product owners — but is the Agile way of working really what is happening?

Maybe the team is actually working in mini waterfalls, and you as a tester end up working with testing as a phase and not an activity. As a tester, have you ever felt alone on a team? Do you ever feel that you are the only one who cares to be Agile in practice, or to have quality Agile testing? Have you ever heard your team say there is no time to change and improve? Do you ever feel unheard on your team?

Join me while I share my experience on how I became an Agile Tester who knew nothing and had little impact, to being heard and valued in my team and company. Getting Agile to work, especially getting Agile Testing to work as a whole team approach can be hard but not impossible. It’s possible to be heard, valued, and respected on an Agile team. Learn how to step into an impactful and influential role so you can become a strong Agile team together.
