Differentiated Management: Build Stronger Teams
Jess Ingrassellino has successfully built and managed a fully remote testing team with testers located across the US, Canada, and Uruguay, working together in various scrum teams. To keep her growing team communicating well, learning from one another, and achieving their personal career goals, Jess has borrowed techniques from her experience in education, and has developed Differentiated Management.

This workshop will teach participants the three key components of differentiated management strategy, and multiple ways of applying the strategies to meet the needs of every team member.

Participants will interact through role play, and perform activities to reinforce concepts, finding their style and developing a personal differentiated management plan to strengthen their teams.

Experience Serious Games for Facilitating Quality and Testing
Are you wondering how to get more attention for quality? Would you like your team(s) to be actively involved in more testing? Done struggling with how to teach testing?

Get your ticket to ride this rollercoaster of a workshop. It’s your turn to use serious games to make quality a team value and testing a team effort!

In this workshop you will explore and experiment with serious games, gamified activities and energizers.

Personal Leadership Development for Quality Professionals
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.
