How Do You Assess Your Test Manager?

Th1     Start Time : 09:45     End Time : 10:30

Peter and Fabian introduce their session:

Some of that written about test managers describes a super-hero; a job description of someone who doesn’t exist. This presentation uses a dialogue between a tester and a test manger discussing ‘test managers’. We then introduce some parameters to assess a test manager. Is this someone who can write a good test plan, deliver X% coverage in the chosen measurement, ensure critical defects are found? Or is it more about teamwork, and leadership? Is he/she performing well, and both doing the right job, and doing the job right? The two views of a test manager’s role enable a practical assessment of the role to be attempted. How will your test manager shape up?

Testers and test managers are different. As we embrace the diversity of the two roles, ‘testing’ can give users what they want; software delivered to the production system in a timely manner, to give real business benefit.
