How to Assess your Test Manager
Test Managers often assess the competence of testers. In this eBook, we turn the tables, to allow testers to assess Test Managers. As a building block along the way, we give two views of a Test Manager: that from the point of view of a Testers, and that from the stand-point of a Test Manager himself/herself. Peter spent much of his working life as a tester, whilst Fabián has worked for a significant number of years as a Test Manager. These two views may not seem compatible, but from here, we enable a Test Manager to be assessed in a (more or less) objective way. The advantage of this approach is that the process can be carried over, to allow a more objective assessment to be made of ANY role ………………………….
