SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- In-the-wild software testing leader, uTest, announced that CEO Doron Reuveni will be a featured speaker at the SIG Global Leadership Summit, a premier executive forum complete with the latest best practices, cost-cutting strategies, innovative processes, and risk-mitigation approaches for sourcing and outsourcing. Together with Google Engineering Director, James Whittaker, and Crowdsourcing.org Founder, Carl Esposti, Reuveni will present "Crowdsourcing - The Next Generation In Sourcing Strategy" on October 19th at 3:40pm.
"The key to successfully employing a crowdsourcing model is to advance beyond the loosely affiliated, unstructured crowd -- a mob," said Doron Reuveni, uTest CEO, "and to create an engaged, interactive community of diverse and skilled professionals. With the help of reputation and compensation systems, and community recruitment and engagement, crowdsourcing is taking the services industry to new heights."
In this session, Reuveni will discuss what crowdsourcing is and what it isn't; how to vet, incent and manage a massive global workforce; and the four tenets to gauge whether or not crowdsourcing fits into your sourcing strategy. Using real-world examples, Reuveni will dispel some of the most common misconceptions about crowdsourcing and reveal how to make it work.
The SIG Global Leadership Summit will be held at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue, 900 Bellevue Way NE, Seattle, WA. View the full agenda on the SIG website.
