Leigh’s talk at TestBoss features engaging multimedia and focuses on the role of the Test Manager within Agile methodology. It’s set to gather plenty of interest from experienced leaders within Software Test Management. Leigh explains:

“Working in Agile differs to Waterfall; the whole mind-set needs to be different. My presentation will go through the challenges faced when moving to Agile, as well as afterwards, as Test Managers try to stay in an agile mind-set.

“Attendees will come away with food for thought on the future of Agile. They’ll question themselves, their role and their journey, as well as being better prepared for facing the difference if and when it happens.”
