A Comprehensive Collection of Agile Testing Best Practices: Two Definitive Guides from Leading Pioneers Janet Gregory and Lisa Crispin haven't just pioneered agile testing, they have also written two of the field's most valuable guidebooks. Now, you can get both guides in one indispensable eBook collection: today's must-have resource for all agile testers, teams, managers, and customers. Combining comprehensive best practices and wisdom contained in these two titles, The Agile Testing Collection will help you adapt agile testing to your environment, systematically improve your skills and processes, and strengthen engagement across your entire development team. The first title, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams, defines the agile testing discipline and roles, and helps you choose, organize, and use the tools that will help you the most. Writing from the tester's viewpoint, Gregory and Crispin chronicle an entire agile software development iteration, and identify and explain seven key success factors of agile testing.

How to Become a People Magnet: 62 Simple Strate...

Do you feel awkward when you are around people? You don’t really know what to say or how to start a conversation on a networking event? Having problems with your boss or employees and don’t know how to convince them to follow your lead? Do you want to improve the relationships with your spouse, confidants, or friends? Or would you just like to improve your people skills and your ability to create powerfully, lasting impressions on everyone you get in touch with from this day on?In his new book How to become a People Magnet international best-selling author and personal development consultant Marc Reklau reveals the secrets and psychology behind successful relationships with other people.Your success and happiness in life - at home and in business - to a great extent depend on how you get along with other people. Are you able to influence and persuade them? Although success can mean something different for each person, there is one common denominator: other people. The most successful people, quite often, aren’t the ones with superior intelligence or the best skills, and the happiest people most times aren’t smarter than we are, yet they are the ones who have the greatest people skills.In this practical and straightforward guide, you will learn specific principles that will help you to build more powerful relationships and stronger connections and leave a positive, lasting impression on everyone you get in touch with. Most of them are common sense, but it’s always good to have a reminder, because as they say “common sense is the least common of all senses". How to Become a People Magnet will give you the tools you need to achieve the results you have always desired and become great with people. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Greg Douras.

This is an exciting time in global business and management theory: Leading researchers as well as practitioners have to find ways to cope with volatility, risk, complexity, hyper competition and speed in various markets. They also need to think about how to exploit the environment in such a way that future generations have the same or better chances.A key question is how to use the unique opportunities arising from new communication technologies and aging populations and, perhaps most importantly, how to shape and control the whole network of business partners in order to provide customer perceived values which are superior to those of competitors. Simultaneously, it is crucial to devise strategies which ensure sustainable economic development of all business partners.The School of Management of the University of Applied Sciences has formed a partner network of universities to perform research activities which address these topics. The result of these activities, the scientific insights gained and transformation examples are presented at a one-day conference with three sessions:- Global Logistics and Operations (Session A)- Global Business Management (Session B)- Managing Financial Performance (Session C)
