Leading Business Testers
February 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MSTFree
Oftentimes companies forego hiring large professional test teams and opt instead to use individuals from the business to perform testing. As a test lead, leading a team of business testers can be a different and unique challenge. Business Testers aren’t necessarily trained in testing and can struggle with tasks such as test planning, test execution, and test reporting. In this situation, it is imperative to approach test leadership differently.
In this webinar, we will look at how to successfully lead a team of Business Testers. We will discuss five important facts to realize when planning and executing testing in this environment. We will also examine how to set the team and your project up for success.
