Submission + - Testers: Get Out of the Quality Assurance Business (

Anml4ixoye writes: Tester Michael Bolton (yes, that's his real name) has a great article entitled Testers: Get Out of the Quality Assurance Business. From the post: "The quality assurance role in the company, Cem said, lay with the management and the CEO (the principal quality officer in the company), since it was they—and certainly not the testers—who had the authority to make decisions about quality." It's a must read for any tester, developer or manager who works with software projects, and came about as a result of my challenge: "Having a QA department is a sign of incompetency in your Development department. Discuss."
