About this book

At a time when information systems are becoming ever more complex and quality to market and time to market are critical for many companies, a structured test process is essential. Even more important is a structured test management process to keep testing under control. Nowadays a test manager must have extensive knowledge of and experience with project management, risk assessment, team building, and, process improvement.

Based on their long-term industry experience, Pinkster and her coauthors describe a holistic approach to test management that combines test methods, test management, risk assessment and stakeholder management into one integral process, giving test managers, test coordinators, IT project managers, and QA managers a competitive edge in environments where there are numerous unstructured requirements, tough testing schedules and limited resources.

This book should be in every test manager's backpack!

Reviews

From the reviews:

"While there are many books in the market about testing, there is a paucity of books on the management of this critical area, so the addition of this one is most welcome. The book describes several test strategies, and how these can be leveraged to manage the test process. The general issues with this, and the problems that occur, are described reasonably well, with graphs and charts, which illustrate not only what occurs, but also how and the reasons why. There is also some information about metrics, and how the highly complex test processes occurring today can be measured....no matter how short your short list of management books to read this year is, this ought to be on that list." --ACM Computing Reviews

"There is a prescriptive element in this collaborative book on a test management approach developed … in the Netherlands: ‘Here is The way to do it. Now do it!’… The appendices are very good, and provide helpful checklists. … There is also a clear expression of the roles commonly thought of in testing … . Read this book with a willingness to ask questions, of yourself, your work situation and of the book. … you will find that the questioning pays off." (Software Testing, Verification and Reliability, Vol. 16 (2), 2006)
