Test Management for Busy People NEW

In today's fast-paced IT world we are often told to deliver higher quality systems to our customers under challenging time schedules, with fewer resources, and reduced budgets. As test managers and team leaders, we must become more effective and efficient with the resources we are given. We should begin questioning whether all those testing processes really must be executed and whether all that documentation should be produced, or whether some, if not all, can be streamlined. Are test plans really important? Are detailed scripts really useful? How can we create highly productive teams? Based on his upcoming book, Test Management for Busy People, Lloyd reveals how the important tasks can be determined and how time can be allocated to them, while minimizing working on multiple projects simultaneously (a real time waster). Lloyd shares a flexible framework showing which tasks can and should be streamlined so that valuable time can be restored to the busy test manager.
