SQS Group AG, 2005 5 SIM/SQS Group What is the benefit of understanding test management models n The more you understand about the nature of the environment in which you are challenged to succeed – the more chance you have of succeeding n The more aware you are of the different models that exist the less likely you are to find yourself working in one which is doomed to failure or which doesnt match your skills and attributes. n The more aware you are of successful models the more use you can be to yourself and your organisation in directing their test management models. n Given a practiced assessment of test management models you are more likely to recognise the signs and be able to provide external direction to other test managers, be they internal or external.
