    *!* POLL: Quality Of Software Ownership - Exit Po

    Who Owns or Should Own Software Quality?

    Prior to voting, it is suggested you read and consider the discussion here:
    http://www.sqaforums.com/showflat.ph...e=1#Post372291

    If you did not vote in the previous poll in March 2007 please add a post here to indicate such - after you vote. Thank you!

    (This is labeled an Exit Poll as the previous poll was an “Entry Poll”. Again, this is not intended to be scientific.)

    Testing is not an art (that is unless your definition of art includes breaking other "art").

    Re: *!* POLL: Quality Of Software Ownership - Exit Po

    Much like Scott in the previous poll, I have a lot of difficulty answering the question without a clear definition of quality in this context. My current feeling is that quality lies close to meeting and exceeding a broad range of customer expections, so I voted for the BAs as the group closest to the customer, but would liked to have ticked a few more boxes as well. What about the trainers, tech support group, etc... Does quality end once the product is shipped?

    Perhaps you could include 'the client' in your list. If the client demands quality, can define quality, can recognise quality, is willing to pay for quality, and won't accept anything less than 'quality' than I guess that the client will end up as the owner of quality.

    Where the client shops for their solutions, and whether they do business with your company, is a different question [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    [/ QUOTE ]Thank you Shane! I intentionally omitted a definition because a definition that all can subscribe to is so elusive. The intent behind the single-selection limitation is to get a feel for how many people believe the responsibility for quality rests on the shoulders of a few, and - ultimately challenge any thinking that an individual or group is the sole owner.

    [/ QUOTE ]In addition to the above, I felt I was pushing the “who” envelope at 16 choices.

    [/ QUOTE ]Agreed! IMO, this is a “circular” aspect of the nature of business where revenue can impact quality of ongoing product. I think most would agree that less revenue means less fuel for product development and less revenue may be cause to kill off projects mid-stream or even before they kick off. Given the latter, does it make sense that more people in a company own quality than conventional thinking would lead one to believe?

    Okay, I won't sing for a vote! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
    How about a redneck dictionary word??

    Currently only about half as many voted here as in the previous.
