As an engineering manager, it is your responsibility to ensure that your team has the resources and support they need to deliver high-quality software on time. If you find that your team does not have enough testing resources, there are a few strategies you can consider to address the issue:

  1. Prioritize testing: One option is to prioritize testing by focusing on the most critical and high-risk features first. This will allow you to allocate your testing resources more effectively and ensure that the most important parts of your product are thoroughly tested.
  2. Automate testing: Another option is to automate as much of the testing process as possible. This can help to reduce the amount of manual testing that is needed and free up your testing resources to focus on more complex tasks.
  3. Hire additional testers: If the workload is consistently high and automation is not an option, you may need to hire additional testers to support your team. This will require careful planning and budgeting, but it can be an effective way to ensure that your team has the resources they need to deliver high-quality software.
  4. Reassign resources: In some cases, it may be possible to reassign resources from other areas of your team to support testing. This could involve shifting developer or designer resources to help with testing, or temporarily reassigning team members to focus on testing tasks.
  5. Outsource testing: If you are unable to hire additional testers or reassign existing resources, you may need to consider outsourcing some of your testing tasks to a third-party provider. This can be an effective way to ensure that your team has the resources they need to deliver high-quality software, but it may also be more expensive than other options.

Ultimately, the best course of action will depend on the specific needs of your team and the resources that are available to you. As an engineering manager, it is important
