„Is test management REALLY dead ?It is often believed that test managers are no longer needed. They are no longer relevant; instead, agile, self-organizing test teams are what count. But is it actually accurate? Is it time for test managers to retrain and take on new responsibilities? It appears that test leads still have time left given the quantity of employment offers that are being offered to them. Different and new abilities are undoubtedly required. But in the end, it all comes down to having good team leadership skills. Arnika therefore wants to have a discussion with the participants on what the future test manager would look like and their position within the company.
