Zen and the Art of Agile Test Management


Successfully leading teams on projects that consistently meet time, quality, and budget constraints is a critical skill set of the test manager. But when transitioning to agile, the test manager is often left out in the cold, with the argument that there is simply no need for them anymore. But this role is not obsolete; the test manager remains critical in both agile transitions and agile team creation, development, and evolution. Rob Sabourin will show how the test manager can become an influential advocate and trusted advisor to product owners, stakeholders, and agile team members. He’ll provide methods and techniques to help test managers make a difference and actually drive success in agile product development efforts through proven, effective, real-world techniques. You’ll learn to become an influential agent of change by identifying critical skills, implementing transitional pathways, and mentoring testers as they participate in agile projects. You’ll leave with methods and techniques to energize testers, promote effective collaboration among agile team members, and provide sage guidance to agile product owners.
