Thanks to everyone who attended my tutorial at StarEast 2012 on Becoming an Influential Test Team Leader. In that session, I briefly discussed my risk assessment method. Here are the slides, plus the flipchart notes for the challenges of testing (yes, all of them!) we listed. For those not there, you will see in the fourth picture, the "human" or "both" (technical and human), were the big winners.
This is the chart for short-term, mid-term and long-term goals.
