With the growing pressure of digital disruption, enterprises find themselves facing the need for speed—and change. DevOps has emerged to enable this change and help speed up time to market and cross-team collaboration. As a result, DevOps has transformed how we test and our daily testing routines.

But what does this mean for manual testing? Have you made the decision to use it or lose it?

Join this web seminar to learn why the adoption of DevOps doesn’t mean the death of manual testing.

Learn:

  1. What the future holds for the role of manual testing and UI test automation
  2. How teams can achieve their required level of testing, without slowing down the acceleration initiative
  3. What these changes mean for testing service providers

Live Webinar – February 28th, 2018 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EST
Activity Type: Education – Course or Training  1 Hour  1 PDU
Provider: MPUG WebnLearn ( REP 1369 )
Mpug Member Free – Members only event

This webinar is based on Eric Uyttewaal’s new textbook Forecast Scheduling with Microsoft Project 2013 published in January 2018.

Programs have long-range visions, high-visibility, many moving parts, and programs are overwhelming and sometimes destructive (for reputations). Regardless of the challenges in managing programs, Eric believes that programs are inherently not more complex than projects, they are just on a higher level of abstraction.

Furthermore, program stakeholders are smarter and more assertive. Budgets are much larger.

Program managers who try managing a program like a project are doomed to fail: Program management has its own techniques and tools.

So, what are those?

That is what this webinar is about: Eric and his team developed special techniques and special applications specifically for program managers.

These innovations allow program managers to forecast their programs, and take corrective action early.

Program managers do not need to be monthly-messengers-of-bad-news!

With these new innovations, they can gain back control over their program, and, at a minimum, adjust expectations in a more timely fashion, or … turn into monthly‑messengers‑of‑good‑news!

Presenter: Eric Uyttewaal (LinkedIn profile) is Canadian and the author of the bestseller Forecast Scheduling with Microsoft Project 2013  He founded ProjectPro that specializes in Microsoft Project and Project Server. Eric has been involved in large programs at the Canadian Forces, IBM Cognos, Northrop Grumman, SanDisk and Investors Group. He was President of the PMI Ottawa Chapter in 1997. Eric is president of the MPUG-Ottawa chapter and board member again 2016. Eric received awards from MPUG in 2012 (Community leader), from Microsoft since 2010 (MVP) and from PMI in 2009 (‘Significant Contributions to the Scheduling Profession’). Eric is currently the only Microsoft Project MVP in Canada.
