Preparing to test

Test managers and test leads are responsible to plan and start the test effort during a development iteration. Preparation involves learning about common practices, considering various aspects of the test effort, and determining which steps to take first.

If you plan to enable configuration management in your project area, see How enabling configuration management affects application capabilities.
