Virtual Insanity: Overcoming the Pains of Managing Remote Test Teams
Globally distributed software teams are no longer just a trend—they are industry commonplace. Creating these teams allows companies to lower their costs by tapping into developing markets and to provide support around the clock. While this seems like a great idea at a high level, the complicated nature of managing the test effort for remote teams can be quite daunting. If many test managers barely have enough time to dedicate to their local team, how can they support their remote teams properly? Join Matthew Weinstock as he shares his experience managing global remote test teams. Matt will take you on a journey through four key areas to successfully develop and manage remote teams. We'll explore concepts that are typically forgotten about in the management of remote testing teams (and even local teams). Learn how to best utilize your test tooling and apply test techniques to accelerate your remote and virtual teams toward improved efficiency, accountability, and productivity. Though your team might be half a world away, it doesn't have to feel that way!
