Dilruba’s Presentation slides

During this global pandemic, each of us has faced a lot of new learning, some of which we had never considered before. Many of us are now required to work from home, which is a whole new challenge.

Leaders must continue to manage their teams and motivate them to be productive, even across great distances. Organizations worldwide are implementing new systems to help their employees stay connected. While each system is an effective medium for communicating in its own right, knowing which one to use for your own team and when can be difficult.

Leading a remote team means being more diligent and becoming highly aware of what each team member is experiencing. Leaders will benefit by taking three key steps to help their teams navigate this new world: Clarity, Communication, and Connection. Doing QA tasks in an Agile environment is already challenging. When it becomes remote, it is even more complicated.

In this webinar, our guest speaker Dilruba Malik, will share her tips and tricks to be successful in remote leadership and testing.

In order to navigate this challenge, please join my session to get tips and tricks to be successful because we might be doing remote testing for quite a long time.
