January QASIG Meeting
Transformational Leadership for the QA Influencer
Presented by Pat Loughery, Quality Assurance Manager, Starbucks
A huge predictive factor in software delivery and high performing teams is having leaders with strong transformational leadership traits – but what does this mean and what are these traits and how can quality assurance team members influence their leadership from any position on the team?
Pat Loughery, Software Quality Assurance Manager at Starbucks, will address all of these questions at our November QASIG meeting in an interactive chat about Transformation Leadership for the QA Influencer. You will walk away from this presentation with a solid understanding of what this leadership style is and what you can do to bring more of it into your organization so that you can reap the benefits for your teams.
