It’s a tall order, but successful test managers have found proven ways to handle the challenges. This course will give attendees the tools they need to succeed as test managers, ways to measure and manage the skills testers need, the tools to hire, motivate and educate testers and the essential tools, techniques and critical processes that will help you manage and develop high-quality test systems that improve over time.

The materials presented in the course follow Rex Black’s book, “Managing the Testing Process”, which is the distillation of over two decades of software, hardware, and systems experience.
