Myth Testers Determine Quality

Test organizations generally find themselves in an impossible position. They are asked to determine when or whether the software is "ready." This is impossible because the testers usually cannot control the quality of the software provided by development or the rate at which problems are corrected. They cannot control what end users expect of it or will do with it. To say that the schedule is out of their hands ... well, that should go without saying.

The uncomfortable truth is that testers are often approached as impediments to release, as though they somehow stand in the way of getting the software out the door. This is a dangerous idea, because it puts testing in a no-win situation. If they find too many problems, the release to production is delayed; but if they do not find enough, the release fails in production.
