Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.
Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.

If you feel that the above quote sounds like Spock, you would not be far off.  I found it attributed to Leonard Nimoy.  It is particularly apt for Quality Assurance.  We start from Logical statements or evidence and then work from there to make more wise choices and plans.  With a lot of projects, people are rushing to get started without  taking the time to apply logical principles.  

The end result is chaos and cost overruns.

Do you have the time to apply logic to a situation before being asked to test?
Do you look back later and regret not spending more time getting organised?

KWSQA May Meeting

The KWSQA meeting was held early this month and has now occurred.  "Testing without Testers" was bound to be controversial and KWSQA had a sold out session as a result.  Interesting viewpoint on the changes that have occurred over the years.

Make you testing effort more effective
NVP Software Solutions was called in to assess tool usage and QA practices after the testing effort skyrocketed on the latest releases.  All personnel were engaged in testing the releases as the end date came closer and the quality was not improving.

Training was supplied to ensure that all personnel were using the same terminology and language around testing reducing confusion and redundancy. 

The tool assessment showed either chaotic use or resistance to use.  The management tool was reconfigured to support the defined processes and then training was supplied to make tool usage easy and effective.
