5 reasons why you shouldn't be a test manager

5 reasons why you shouldn't be a test manager

This presentation does not want to focus on the "bad" of test management but wants, through the reasons I will present, to inspire/teach others to thrive as test managers, appreciate more the test managers they worked with and to focus on remaining relevant in their preferred role and becoming better at it, since test management is not necessarily the ultimate finish line even in many cultural settings this is the ultimate goal.  Based on my experience working with different Test Managers I will outline reasons for not becoming a Test manager: you are/were not a tester, not a supportive/empathetic type, not a T-shaped person, you want to manage and not lead, you need glory or validation and the bonus reason: you don't want to. Keywords describing presentation: testing career, test manager, leadership, lead by example, growth mindset.


Being in the software testing field for more than 11 years, never tired of learning about it, being passionate about how manual testing integrates with automated checking, leading multiple testing teams from 3 to 20+ testers on different types of projects from e-banking, e-commerce to digital marketing and e-learning.
