Reality Ask Do Not Tell

In the millennium, the business decides when the software is ready, based on what the test group discovers. The rolling release strategy provides for a constant flow of functionality, and the test organization's role is to constantly measure and report the level of capability and stability of the software. However, it is the business user's decision when it is acceptable. In other words, the user may elect to accept or waive known problems in order to obtain proven functions. This is a business decision, not a test criteria.

This does not absolve development from creating working product or test from performing a thorough analysis. It does mean that it is not up to them to decide when it is ready. This can work either way; the developers may be satisfied with a design that the users reject, or the users may decide they can live with some bugs that drive the testers up the wall.

The key is to remember that the system belongs to those who use it, not those who create it.
