What You’ll Learn?

Learn to manage testing maintaining agency – the capacity of individuals to act independently and make their own free choices. This is not a story about managing testing based on sessions. 

This is a story of working with product owners to identify gaps and assign responsibilities, working with teams to make the right skills available for different kinds of testing tasks across roles, identifying testing roadblocks with data deep dives, and creating space where test design and test execution always come together while navigating corporate documentation requirements. 

Practices for this are frequent deliveries, following change, whole-team test automation, bug reports as conversations, pair and ensemble testing, and feature checklists. We need to ensure we pay attention to both testing of today and the testing of the future.
