The Association for Software Testing is pleased to announce its ninth annual conference, CAST 2014 “The Art and Science of Testing”, to be held in New York, NY, August 11-13. To some, software testing is an outgrowth of engineering, mathematics and physics, while to others, testing is an exploration of psychology, philosophy or sociology. At CAST 2014, conference speakers will share their stories and experiences surrounding software testing, whether bound by rules and laws of science and experimentation, or expressed through creativity, imagination, and artistry.

Join us this summer for our ninth annual conference in downtown New York City at the beautiful Kimmel Center located next to Washington Square Park August 11-13, as we explore the art and science of testing.

Context-Driven Change Leadership: How to Keep From Feeling Testy LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Have you ever clubbed a seal or shot a panda? Neither have we...BUT we have helped a LOT of people and organizations facilitate change!

Managing, facilitating and sometimes just coping with change can be a challenge. Finding where you fit or how to help grow a change initiative effectively can be a struggle, even if you have been a part of an organization dealing with change before. Maybe you are part of an agile transition, or perhaps you’re facing a shift in role or responsibility? How do you know you are in a change? When will it be over? What’s coming next? What is it all about ?!?!

Join Selena and Matt for this interactive workshop where you will participate in simulations and activities designed to help you understand, adapt, and even contribute to different change initiatives. You will come to the workshop with your real-life challenges and concerns. You will leave with increased self-awareness, techniques to work with others to support changes, and ideas for how to influence your underlying organization.

Some of the topics we’ll cover include environment design, change models, influence diagrams, change patterns, as well as the pillars and key values for successful change leaders.
