TestBash Leadership 2022 - The Paradox of Leadership with Niranjani Manoharan

Niranjani Manoharan explains the paradox of leadership: we, very often, consciously or unconsciously live life linearly, solving problems through logical processes while prodding our intellect to understand life through reducing it to its parts and then trying to put them together in different patterns to try and make sense of it all. But life is a paradox.

We’ll use this Club thread to share resources mentioned during the session and answer any questions we don’t get to during the live session.

Questions Answered Live:

  1. @edthetestingtester How should you go about choosing your first team to pilot your automation initiative?
    Answer: It depends - I would suggest starting with a standalone service that may not impact the core services as your pilot team.
    Once you complete test coverage for them then use your learnings and feedback from that team to focus your efforts on one of the core services.
