Test management has come to be equated with what various automated tools do, but truly managing testing as a project applies powerful practices to testing’s unique challenges and produces far greater results. Learn to better define and communicate how you’ll reliably deliver testing’s full value so you can negotiate for the scarce time, resources, and influence you need to do it.

  • Common test management tool capabilities and limitations
  • Added benefits of managing testing as a project vs. an activity
  • Tailoring project management methods to testing’s unique challenges
