Ensuring Quality is a team effort and not just tester’s effort . However, Testers always fall at the forefront of ensuring/assisting quality. Below are the top 5 things that I think are important in assisting quality by any organization that provides qa software testing services:
1. Testing earlier and testing frequently :
The earlier a tester is involved , the earlier bugs can be found and hence the cheaper it is to resolve the issue.
This ensures that a smaller problem does not snowball into a bigger problem.
2. Communication within team members :
Consistent communication between QA software testing services, Developers and Business is essential to ensure that whole team is on the same page . This also ensures that all expectations are met
3. Strategizing and following processes:
Implementation of certain processes always help in longer run . For example: Ensuring coding standards, effective peer review of test cases or code , ensuring test data is correctly mentioned in the test cases , creating test plan and outlining deliverables.
4. Avoiding overburdening of resources :
If Developers and QA resources are under pressure to release under tight deadlines , the product quality will naturally decrease as likelihood of technical debt items will increase.
5. Put the end user first :
Since any project is developed for an end user , therefore , user’s expectations should be the top priority while developing or testing a project Or user’s will opt for some other options.
