Many organizations just are not committed to quality. These organizations don’t value the expertise, commitment, and initiative of their test team or they have no quality process or test team at all. In organizational cultures where holding your nose and pushing software out the door is considered best practice, test managers are challenged to develop inventive ways of recruiting and retaining staff, finding the time to perform the essentials of testing, and identifying and ensuring that important defects are examined and addressed. Presented by Gerie Owen, MBA, M.Ed. and Peter Varhol, MA, MS, this talk provides ideas for test managers who don’t have the time or resources to do their jobs in the way they were trained.
