President, My Next IT Course CATP, CSM

A Certified Agile Testing Professional and Certified Scrum Master.

As a software testing professional for over 25 year, I have held positions at all levels of the testing organization starting out as a Test Analyst then progressing to a Test Lead, Test Manager, Program Test Manager, Senior Test Manager, Acting AVP and Director of Testing. I have concentrated my career in large enterprises within the Insurance, Telecom and Banking industries. I have managed testing team both onshore and offshore and built and lead teams of up to 400 resources. My project experience includes projects of all sizes up to $500 million in technology spend. I have directly managed budgets of up $60 million annually.

My work in the testing methodology and process area has been adopted by large Banks at the enterprise level and has lead to a transformation of the testing practice at that level.

Working closely with offshore vendors, I have been able to influence their testing practices and elevated teams to much higher capability maturity levels as confirmed by independent comprehensive assessments.

Working with testing professionals both onshore and offshore, I have found a large gap in the testing skills of resources, exacerbated by many organizations lack of foundational training.

My goal is to provide much needed training in Software Testing for those who want to enter this profession as well as those looking to improve their skills in order to advance in their careers.
