"""Description:Okay, so your company now aspires to become a ""Level x"" organization. Until now you probably used a ""code and fix"" methodology. Won't work anymore - processes are in - code heroes are being relegated to the sidelines. Along with across the board improvements, you also need a solid software testing methodology. Yes, a documented process at that.This documented standard probably works best with huge organizations - government agencies could find it useful to stick to the word. I for one, work in the project industry, so I find about 40% of the documentation relevant. Why ? No time.Is it worth having ? Yes, I would recommend it as compulsory reading for all QA Managers / Project leads who need to make the not-so-gentle transition to a ""managed"" or ""repeatable"" level. When you are drafting processes for your organization, open this, plagarize a few ideas and make your own document. So, essentially it qualifies as reference material."""
