Real Quality Assurance By Tom Gilb

Author: · May 22, 2009 · Filed Under IT Estimating, Software Estimating, Thoughts  - 1 Comment(s)

Tom is a real software visionary.. .Actually, Tom is the person I credit with coining the term “software metrics” many years ago… and a delightful guy. 

He released his draft of his “Real QA” Manifesto.  He points out that Quality Assurance has degenerated into just testing and points out that real QA can save considerably… Real QA involves quality management, helping engineer quality into the system.

His “no surprises assurance” objective is extremely exciting:

”  To allow management to understand release consequences fully, in relation to expectations, with the lowest costs, the lowest risks, and the lowest degree of surprises.”


You can find his Real QA manifesto here.
