This book is not primarily for software test and QA (Quality Assurance) professionals who are working in ‘typical’ organisations. The Best Practice approach in this book is based on ITIL testing and is well suited to any IT organisation that takes its software testing serious. Moreover, unless software engineering practices across the organisation are mature the approach will probably fail. However, that does not prevent even an organisation with a yet to be developed testing process from selecting best practices and tasks set forth in this book and applying them. The net result will be an incremental improvement, and may be the catalyst for larger improvements with large wins.

This book is invaluable to organisations that are committed to software engineering at the defined, managed or optimising levels of maturity. It distills formal test practices drawn from a variety of ITIL and IT service Management sources into a succinct, process-oriented guide. The book is filled with templates and examples to set up and manage the process. ITIL and IT Service Management are not rigid, but can be tailored to any software practices and approaches, especially by using the plans and templates provided.If your organization is pursuing software change without risk, or are contractually required to have a formal software engineering process or process capability, this book will address the software testing process areas of a larger initiative.
