Topic – Becoming Heard As A Tester


Almost every tester experienced the frustration of not being heard. That can manifest with testing trivialized as an activity or testers not being provided with needed information or asked for feedback. That yields frustration, and frustration can make us think about what we can do to change that and gain influence as testers? In this talk, Irja will share how to embrace leadership skills in testing and make them workable in the context of work.

Top Takeaway:

  • The audience will learn how leadership skills apply and help to test and how it’s essential to make an effort to gain one within the company.
