Changing mindset to keep up with agile transformation within IT

Within my 20+ years experience of enterprise IT development, I have changed my role from developer to a traditional tester to becoming a QA coach. For this talk I will be sharing my personal story about the changes I have gone through in my working life. Starting as a Cobol developer and then becoming a fulltime traditional tester was a big step, but moving from a traditional tester to a QA coach turned out to be even bigger.

I will take you through the phases, from initial organizational conversations about the changes that were needed, to accepting the direction and finding new gaps/needs to deliver.

This might seem as an unmanageable thing to do – but it can be done!
