2Test Management: Responsibilities for the Test Analyst

“If a tree falls in the forest, and we’ve already sold it, does it have quality?” —The pointy-haired boss of the Dilbert cartoon strip, mutilating the famous Zen kōan to respond to Ratbert the tester’s protestations that the test results do not support product release.

The second chapter of the Advanced Test Analyst syllabus is concerned with test management as seen from the test analyst’s perspective. There are four sections:

  1. Introduction
  2. Test Progress Monitoring and Control
  3. Distributed, Outsourced, and Insourced Testing
  4. The Test Analyst’s Tasks in Risk-Based Testing

Let’s look at each section and how it relates to test analysis.
