TUTORIAL: Personal Leadership Development for Quality Professionals (Part 1)
Software cannot be tested to be right or wrong. The desired outcome of testing is quality and reducing risk for people who matter. Yet, testers, test managers, and quality coaches are often challenged to deliver absolute results.

We see testing and QA as value and quality driven, social, and collaborative activities. We treat the absolute and objective as terms for interaction, dynamics, and means to drive quality and context. Testing influences others far beyond the objective results we deliver with it.

In this tutorial, you will be exploring the impact of your personal thinking and your values on coaching and managing quality, testing software. We will offer you a management perspective combined with a philosophical and psychological perspective on leadership.

This tutorial aims to increase your consciousness about your personal motivations and perspectives. It’s about personal growth in leadership. The tutorial is ‘experiential’ in the sense that you will learn through a combination of short lectures and exploration and experiencing. It is imperative, that you are eager to participate in the facilitated activities in the tutorial.

TUTORIAL: Faces of Courage in Agile Transformation (Part 2)
Second part of the class:

Courage is a commonly stated value in agile principles and values. However, only a small fraction of people in organizations can employ it, and usually in extremely limited circumstances. This makes transformation an elusive target that can cause high levels of frustration at every level of an organization.

Unlock the mysteries of what triggers a change agent and how they experience the consequences. We will explore the theory and practice of change agency, and participants will explore their own situations in relation to leading a change.

In light of the current global crisis, we will also explore how our current reality changes the nature of the environment in which change is introduced.

TUTORIAL: Driving Quality Outcomes (Part 1)
In this workshop, the participants will collaboratively train their abilities to influence the social and organizational outcomes of the work performed personally and by their teams.

We will offer you a management-perspective combined with a philosophical and psychological perspective on leadership. You will be given the chance to use the two perspectives as tools or means to increase your understanding of the needs of your stakeholders and their strategic needs. You have experienced leading, motivating, managing testing; we will train your ability to act, producing significant outcomes for stakeholders.

The tutorial is ‘experiential’ in the sense that you will learn through a combination of short lectures and exploration and experiencing. It is imperative, that you are eager to participate in the facilitated activities in the tutorial.

The goal for us is for you to experience clarity, power, and virtuosity for action in your daily work with software testing and quality.
