System Test Manager Education Program

STM - Version:1
Testing leaders of today are facing greater challenges. We are asked to present higher ROI on our budget, greater quality on our efforts, and hence we have no choice but to educate our team members, and make them better professionals. We are also facing an increased pase of development and emerging development models which force us to change the way we test, prioritize and in fact think and act differently and creatively. The STM™ includes 3 stages, each having a focus on different set of tools that enable participants to comply with the demanding needs mentioned.
Intended audience
Professionals, who lead testing teams – testing team leaders - or manage bigger teams – test managers, test directors – and are interested in learning and improving their test management tools/skills/capabilities, to cope with the growing need for professional test managers. Also, new test leaders, who would like to get trained for the job, are accepted.
