Rapid Software Testing for Managers and Solo Testers

C     Start Time : 08:30     End Time : 17:30

Rapid Software Testing for Managers and Solo Testers from EuroSTAR Conferences on Vimeo.

Maybe you have experience in managing testing, or maybe you’re new to it. Perhaps you’re a soloist–the responsible tester on a team, required to co-ordinate your own work with helpers or managing the work of an offshore team.

Rapid Software Testing for Managers is designed to help you make testing fast, inexpensive, credible, and accountable.

In this one-day workshop, we’ll explore test management and your project’s context and how to make them fit together. We’ll do the work through experiential exercises, puzzles, and scenarios, along with short presentations, conversation, and some actual testing and reporting.

The goal of the workshop is to teach you how to respond with the management action appropriate to your context while recognizing the near-universal situation: testing is almost always done under extreme time pressure and conditions of uncertainty.
