Being a Test Manager is more than just ‘being the Boss’. Sure, there is direction to set, issues to address, hiring, performance reviews, status updates, and the list goes on. Managers want to empower their team members to make good decisions and execute well, but does that mean there’s nothing for a manager to do? How does one provide value when specific testing tasks are done by others? How does a manager go beyond ’being the Boss’ to actually helping their staff to do amazing work?
