While much of testing and test management involves rational decision-making, measuring quality and providing testing services to the team, there are realms of the test manager’s job where psychology meets politics to form psychopolitics. In this webinar, drawn from three decades of industry experience and materials in his best-selling book Managing the Testing Process, 3rd edition, Rex will discuss how psychology and politics can collide to make the test manager’s job…interesting. Join in the discussion after the initial presentation with your own questions and stories about testing psychology, testing politics, and plain ol’ psycho-politics! The International Software Testing Qualification Board has already effected profound change in the software testing profession, and the rate of that change continues to accelerate. Not only have 150,000 people have achieved Foundation certification, but increasing numbers of testers are taking Advanced exams, including the extremely challenging Advanced Technical Test Analyst exam. In this webinar, Rex will explain why it’s so tough—and why technically-oriented testers who have achieved Foundation certification should step up to the challenge.
