  • What is PMSIG?

    The PM Special Interest Group is devoted to the discussion of Project, Program, or Product Management issues of all kinds.  Until we can meet in person, a speaker is chosen to do a webinar each even-numbered month to share a novel or engaging idea or experience covering this simple charter: “How do we manage who does what by when?” (with a splash of some Hows and Whys for good measure).  Discussion topics will include classic planning and execution topics as estimation, tooling, and reporting, but also how the dynamics of coordination, communication, and culture influence the role of a PM.

    PMSIG is hosted by Jon Bach, a Senior Program Manager at eBay, leading various quality-related efforts in its Marketing Technologies team of 150 people. He has more than two decades of software quality project experience as a tester, test manager, test consultant, and test director, which he now uses to help eBay make sure its marketing efforts are thoughtful and relevant. He has an energetic and practical style, and he is known to many eBay customers as “Jon the Bug Hunter.”
