Aimed at experts who are dedicated to software testing, The Software Testing Process: Test Management addresses the major issues related to advanced, state-of-the-art test management. This book covers the syllabus required to pass the Certified Tester Examination - Advanced Level as defined by the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB).
Software developers, project managers, quality managers, and team leaders will benefit from the comprehensive coverage of risk oriented management and the way testing is shown to be an integral, though independent part of software development.
Included are best practices in the field of testing, as well as detailed descriptions of involved tasks, roles, and responsibilities. Well suited for self-study, the reader is "taken by the hand" and guided through the key concepts and terminology of software testing in a variety of scenarios and case studies (as featured in the first book in this series, Software Testing Foundations).
