- The development team hasn't giving the buy-in to be responsible for developing automation as they develop the product
- The QA Analyst has trouble committing the time to learn automation, doesn't know where to start learning, and not given a chance to apply knowledge once learned.
My problem with the article is that I believe a manual tester should never be obsolete!
