As a member of the IBA / QAC Consulting Resource Pool, reporting to the Test Practice Manager, the Programme Test Manager / Portfolio Test Manager is responsible for the end to end implementation of a test solution (functional & non-functional) within the SDLC across a specified portfolio of work, which can range from small change to large programmes of work.

The Programme Test Manager & Portfolio Test Manager role differ only insofar as a Programme Test Manager will be responsible for a single Programme, whereas a Portfolio Test Manager will be responsible for a portfolio of smaller work packages, e.g. single projects & small change.
