San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) October 12, 2010
Michael Hackett, co-founder and Senior Vice President of LogiGear, will share his views about human resource training and development in software testing during a panel discussion about Vietnam’s burgeoning software testing and development service industry. Part of Michael responsibilities at LogiGear is to lead and direct the corporate training and education programs; he has a unique view to share with aspiring entrepreneurs who will attend the panel and explore a question: “Can Vietnamese companies move up the value chain and bridge the gap in skill competency and training?”
At LogiGear, he has developed a successful multi-faceted set of training programs for LogiGear Vietnam, a software testing outsourcing company, based in San Mateo, California, with operations in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. He also helped develop and implement the LCTP (LogiGear Certified Tester Program) program at Ho Chi Minh University of Science, which helps add software testing curriculum to the existing computer science program. This additional course-work has helped many students at the University understand the differences and subtleties of software testing as both a practice and a career choice following graduation.
In addition to these internal training efforts, LogiGear also is spearheading the development of Vietnam’s software-testing workforce, including the translation and publication of software-testing textbooks, consulting with Universities about courses and curricula, developing Vietnam’s first software testing conference (VISTACON 2010), offering organized internship programs to aspiring Engineering and Computer Science graduates, and developing a unique LogiGear Certified Testing Professional (LTCP) program that is highly respected in Vietnam.
Michael recently pointed out in an interview at the VISTACON software testing conference, “Our Vietnam training and development programs cover every aspect of doing business in software testing outsourcing, on both the communication and the technology sides. At LogiGear, immediately after being hired, our engineers are scheduled for English Communication and Software Testing classes. As they progress in the company, these classes incorporate higher-level skills, such as advanced software testing, project management, training-the-trainer, and working effectively with customers. Our engineers are some of the best trained and skilled software testing engineers in the country, but it is essential to augment their education with industry-specific courses incrementally month over month. Any company wanting to move up the value chain needs to consider training and development as a core business component, not an ancillary one.”
