Ethics & Work Principles

  • Software Testing is an information providing service. I cannot assure anything on which I have no control.
  • After testing the software I will provide you with information that you may analyse to decide whether the software is as per the quality criteria you had in mind.
  • All testing practices are context dependant and people working on/related to the project are most important part of its context.
  • There can be better practices that can be followed for a certain context, but there is no one best practice that can apply to every software.
  • Stakeholders of the project are the most important source of knowledge and information about the project and its requirement.
  • I cannot guarantee that the software will never break. With the available information for my testing activity I can say that the software has not yet broken.
  • I will not prepare and provide any false documentation or report just to impress with numbers or metrics.
  • My test reports will be my opinion about the software based upon the information and co-operation I receive from the people involved with the project.
  • Project is a solution to a problem, solving which we get a working product. If the problem isn't solved, the product(software) doesn't work.
  • Over time projects may unfold in an unpredictable manner. By taking the right decision at the right time we can effectively test our product.
