Vi har for øjeblikket en del diskussion omkring Test Manager rollen, hvorvidt det er en ledelses rolle eller ej. Jeg ser det som en projekt leder rolle bare med mere snævert testfagligt fokus.............hvordan er det i jeres firmaer?

Venlig hilsen

Hi,

I think this is a very interesting question. With the transition to Agile in more and more companies the role of the Test Manager has move with the times to find the correct role within the team. Working within Scrum there is a Scrum Master who is responsible for the every day operation of the team including technical issues, impediments, burn down etc.

So where does the Test Manager role fit in. ? Should there be a "Test Manager" in each Scrum team or should there be a pool of testers who are assigned to Scrum teams with a Test Manager responsible for the testers regards test procedures, templates etc.

Is there anyone who has a job description as such for a Test Manager role working within Agile/Scrum ?

Testmanagement vil normalt indeholde de fleste discipliner fra projektledelse - medmindre opgaven er begrænset i scope.
Kan bl.a. ses ved at ISTQB advanced certificering som testmanager vægter projektledelsesdiscipliner relativt højt.

Ansvarsfordeling og snit i forhold til projektleder er derfor væsentlig at afstemme.

Hej

Jeg er enig med Gitte Ottosen og Kim Hjortholm. En Testmanager hos os i Logica skal beherske de forskellige områder indenfor projektledelse.

Vi anser en Testmanager som en delprojektleder med fokus på test og vi uddanner også testmanagere indenfor projektledelse.

Mvh

I saw this article and thought I would share.

I think this article backs up Karsten's view that Project Management skills play a bigger part in the role of Test Management.
