In their keynote "From Inspiration to Change", Wim, Eddy and Matt will talk about what you are going to do to take the ideas you learned at the Agile Testing Days, implement them in your organization, and make them stick. After a brief discussion of the speakers’ experience creating change, audience members will learn how to identify their sphere of influence, a method to pull ideas from the conference, prune them, select the powerful few, socialize them in the team, get them started, then promote and grow the ideas in the organization.
Join us this year for the 10th edition of the Agile Testing Days and leave with your list of ideas to try on Monday at work.
