Rules Are Someone Else’s Opinion: Delinquents, Rebels & Outlaws—Why You Love Them…and Why You Secretly are One

Add to calendar

When you hear these words, do you imagine someone who would NEVER fit into a corporate environment…and more importantly, someone a corporation would definitely not want? Wrong! Turns out that corporations love rebels and DISRUPTORS and often these are people who rise and shine the most. Why? Because they aren’t satisfied with the status quo and are fearless enough to actually DO something about it. Because they believe that rules are someone else’s opinion, they aren’t afraid to break them and make newer and better ones. Does this sound familiar, fellow testers? If you’re ready to shake up how testing, data, validation, and ALL the things are done in your company…but aren’t sure how it’s time to unleash your inner rebel. Come and find out how to do this while remaining un-fired and un-jailed!
