The book: Guide to Advanced Software Testing: Second Edition is an excellent resource for all testing professionals. Here you can get access to the chapter on Test Management

Test management is the art of planning and directing a test project or a test subprocess to success. It is in many ways like project management, and yet not quite the same. The fundamental ISTQB test process is described in Section 2.2. of the book. This process includes the test management activities of test panning, monitoring, control, and test closure. These activities form the basis for the corresponding ISO 29119 test management activities described here, and they are very similar in nature.

This eBook will examine:

  1. How project management interacts “upward” with the development or maintenance project management it belongs to.
  2. How the test project management interacts “downward” with the management of its individual test subprocess.
  3. Interaction between the test subprocess management and its dynamic and/or static test processes.
