Practitest Webinar – When a Test Manager Makes a Difference

Yesterday I gave a Tutorial. The Tutorial was hosted by PractiTest and dealt with the changing role of the Test Manager. A lively topic, judging by the large number of participants. One advantage of a virtual presentation is that all 700 participants fond a front row seat.

In the tutorial I describe how the activities of the Test Manager have changed with the adoption of Agile. I describe a few settings in which the Test Manager still can make a difference. In this webinar I share my own experience and briefly describe some of the projects I was involved with. But a lot of information originates from workshops I gave. One of them with Jan Jaap Cannegieter and the other with the authors of the TestNet Jubilee book.

I merged both the slides and a video recording in the registration below. The slides are also available on slideshare. Thanks Joel and Maayan from PractiTest for hosting this webinar.
