Change is Inevitable, except from a Vending Machine
“Change is Inevitable, except from a Vending Machine"

Is the above true for your workplace?
Do you feel that everything is changing?
Can it be helped?

The above quote was provided from a list of alternate Murphy's Laws.
We could turn it around and ask if the only place you get change is the Vending Machine.  If that is true then you are probably in the wrong company for Quality Assurance and Software Testing.  A company that is standing still  has a limited future.   Quality Assurance is one of the first places change becomes apparent.  While many people are planning for change and many people are working on the change, it is not unusual for QA to be the first place that is all comes together and is visible.  The new offering, new product or new service all show up in Quality Assurance  in their entirety.  

if you want change, join Quality Assurance.  You will certainly see it.
