Effective Test Management Course

Location: Edge Head Office

Being an Effective Test Manager is more than just being ISEB or ISTQB certified – that is just the start.

In order to be truly effective, Test Managers need skills that include: Influencing – an ability to identify risks before they become issues; championing the testing cause when others do not want to hear it; using the latest testing and project methodologies; applying risk based techniques and identifying; and delivering solutions that kill off the expected and unexpected problems thrown up by everyday projects and test related issues.

As the need for responsive, agile testing approaches grows, so does the need for skilled    test managers to manage the process, quality and people involved to ensure testing provides real value.

Mark Jones, Test Manager at Iress UK said; "This is an extremely enjoyable and rewarding 3-day course. The sessions are run by a friendly and dynamic leader with a huge amount of practical knowledge, and the group is encouraged to share information, ideas and experiences. A lot is packed in but nothing feels rushed, and the course materials are excellent. Many courses leave you with little to take away that can be applied to your actual job – this isn’t one of them. I’d thoroughly recommend it."
