Could anyone help me with a name of a test organisation, including:
- mentorship in test
- test education
- test network (social)
- test tool support (TestDirector)
- TPI incl test methology improvement
The current name is Test Support, but we sure would like a better name.
QA and or test services and QA and or Test Centre of Excellence seem to be flavour of the month in a number of the client organisations I've worked in, with the QA and Test interchangable (even where they are not fungible) or where the test teams perform qa roles too.

"You don't know SQUAT, that's why we're here."
Actual quote from an email I received from a product manager:
"I want to tell all our customers to go to it (site) on Monday next week. I especially want to make sure the forums work right. Can you test every feature you can find?"
Where I work, we are called "QUEST", which stands for Quality User Experience and Satisfaction Team (I had to go check our Wiki to find out what it stood for). This happened before I was here and the person who created this is now gone. There is one person who actually still uses the name. The rest of us look at this as a complete joke. Suggest you steer away from any Dilbert-esque names - doesn't help you gain respect from the rest of your team or your company.
Drew, I loved SQUAT - sent that to my co-worker who's as offended by QUEST as I am.
