Testing is a sub-project within an overall development project. To be successful, testing needs to be managed effectively like any other project, while also addressing testing's unique aspects, which can make it even more challenging than the already difficult job of managing a typical project. This intensive interactive seminar workshop shows how to manage testing as a project so it provides effective testing on time and in budget. This course also helps test managers learn to better communicate the value of their testing and negotiate for scarce time, resources, and influence. Exercises provide practice applying the techniques and learning how to avoid common pitfalls.
