Scaling Agile Teams is hard. Getting senior leadership buy in when they can barely spell Agile and never had invested in good testing is even harder. Then you add the complexity of laying the ground work of good testing practices and development practices and being consistent across multiple teams and you have a big ball of mess. Come along with Mary where she tells the stories of transforming her organization from waterfall to agile, building out the entire testing practice, and changing a culture from date driven to quality driven. There will be tales of successes when she expected failure, tales of failures that lead to major learnings and tales of changing a culture to care about quality. The journey will describe how consistency drives quality, how defining a vision/mission and strategy empowers testers to own the practices, and knowing the goal of "What Good Testing Looks Like" allows you to model this across many teams. It might also tell you what testers really do in Agile.
