We live in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous times (VUCA World), and only a high level of training and a continuous learning mindset can provide us with the best attributes to respond to all the challenges that the acceleration of digital transformation brings us.
As IT professionals, and because of the involvement that Testers have in the software development lifecycle, we have a responsibility to prepare ourselves as best we can to rise to the challenges and generate the greatest positive impact in everything we do.
This context increasingly intersects with the purpose for which, in 2010, PSTQB was created: to promote the professional careers of those in the field of software testing and to foster the knowledge of this community.
We are doing everything we can for this PSTQB cycle to be marked by a clear commitment to the development of initiatives that promote and enhance an increase in benefits to members, both individual and corporate.
To all the volunteers, business associates and individuals, institutions of higher education and the community in general, who work with us to make all the initiatives more dynamic, I want to express my deepest gratitude, because this only makes sense and will have more impact if it is done by all, for all!
