I am an automation engineer with 10 years experience, recently promoted to Automation lead in my company.
My colleague who used to handle both automation and manual before, has responsibility to look after manual and the overall testing progress. But seeing my progress, he felt insecure and tried to get involved in the automation projects again. He was taking status updates and automation updates from people, which is what I am supposed to do.
In this process, I am confused, should I stop asking for updates and guiding people in day to day work or should I concentrate on my work only?
