Tutorial: Agile Test Leadership at Scale
Business agility and agile at scale have become the new normal in many companies. It impacts the way we think about and work with quality and testing. Unfortunately, the guidance for test managers and people in leading roles have been lacking for quite a while. As a response, ISTQB is now developing a new certification to help you build the competencies and skills to thrive in a value-driven organization. The focus is on the challenges that spans multiple teams and therefore need to be tackled on an organizational level.
First, to support agile transformation we need to adopt a mindset, culture, methods, etc. which supports business agility. This approach is called quality assistance and builds on principles from many different disciplines like lean, agile, devops, and systems thinking.
The role of a test manager or test leader changes and more effort should be spent on enabling others.
In this tutorial, you will learn:
- how quality assistance differs from a traditional approach
- what personal skills become crucial to strengthen quality and testing on an organizational level
- value stream mapping as a technique to improve quality and testing on an organizational level
In this tutorial, you will get a taste of the coming certification “ISTQB Agile Test Leadership at Scale”.
The tutorial is aimed at people who have a leader role or who are interested in learning more about test leadership.
It is highly recommended that participants have some experience with agile at scale and are familiar with Scaled Agile Framework and LeSS.
