Test Management for Large, Multi-Project Programs NEW

Running a test project can be a challenge. Running a number of test projects as part of a portfolio can be even more challenging. However, most challenging of all can be running a group of projects in which every project needs to merge at a single end point. Geoff Horne considers: How does a program test manager (PTM) slice up the testing work packages and then group them by “like” types into discrete projects? How does the PTM determine the best approach for each project while maintaining the most advantageous approach for the overall program? How does each project fit into the overall test strategy? These and other questions are the everyday challenges of the PTM. Maintaining forward momentum at the required rate across many different tracks, all heading for a single end point, requires skill and experience at many levels. Join Geoff to learn how to qualify, quantify, and effectively run any size test program like a well-oiled machine.
