Keith Klain, Director - Head of Global Test Center at Barclays

His key-note at STAR East 2012 had become talk of testing-community.

With "Bridging the Gap - Leading Change in a Community of Testers", he showed us how we can adapt some principles to lead ourselves and our team to a new and better place.

Meet Keith Klain, the Head of Barclays Capital Global Test Center (GTC).

When Keith took over GTC, he implemented some changes to put a system in place to foster testing talent and drive out fear by abandoning worthless metrics and maturity programs, overhauling the training regime, and investing in a culture that rewards teamwork and innovation.

Tea-time with Testers talked with Keith to find out how he is leading this change. Know it directly from him in this exclusive interview.
