Signs You Should Worry: Testing

One of the keys to achieving quality IT projects is a solid test and review process. As a project owner, you may not be able to read a single line of code, but you will be able to understand poor test results. Whether the test personnel are on your staff or outside consultants, their task is critical to ensuring that your project succeeds.

Here are some signs that your test and review process may need attention:

Testing

  • There is no test plan
  • There is no assigned test staff
  • Programmers are being used as testers – note: programmers are paid more per hour than testers
  • Your team is spending too much time testing the application and fixing the bugs it finds before review
  • Your team is spending too much time rewriting the application after reviews

Reviews

  • There is no review process
  • Your review process is not finding many errors – unless you are devoting a lot of time to eliminating them before the review process
  • There are too many reviews – or not enough
  • The reviews are not producing results – which either means the customer finds them or the application suffers
  • The customer’s reviews are producing lots of change requests
