Do you have separate Manual Test team and Automation test team? If yes, its good. But does your manual testing have confidence in Automation ? Does this team even knows what are the Automation engineers doing or what is being automated by them? Do you think that there is a lack of involvement of manual testers in automation testing.
Moreover, does your Automated test gets any advantage of Manual QA experience?
We were facing the same problems and in my talk i would like to share our experience how we got rid of these problems by automating our processes and getting full involvement of both these teams.
What Challenges we faced, what were our solutions, how it benefited us. Hopefully my talk will answer a lot of questions.
