Many of us have worked in test groups where we felt as if we didn't have enough time, hardware, or staff to do the work. Consequently, we feel that while somebody might be in control, we are certainly not. As test managers, we do not have to work this way. There are other, more effective ways to develop and use your influence within your organization to help your test group¨and project¨succeed.
