Must-Haves for ROI and Your QA Career

Great ROI for a Great Software QA Team

With uncertain economic conditions, QA managers are being asked to do more with less. How can your company improve software quality and get a great return on investment (ROI)? 

Each ISTQB certification offered by ASTQB is designed to make your QA team more effective at finding software defects. Everyone should have ISTQB Foundation Level certification, of course. But every certification beyond Foundation Level gives a team member the knowledge to be even more effective. ISTQB Agile Testing and ISTQB Agile Technical Tester certifications are great examples of this.

ISTQB Agile Testing is one of ASTQB's most popular certifications because it provides specialized Agile testing knowledge that goes well beyond ISTQB Foundation Level. It is a must-have for almost anyone involved in software quality and is a bonus for their career. Strong knowledge of Agile software testing helps QA teams communicate more effectively, can speed development, and can reduce defects, making everyone a hero. If your team is heavily focused on Agile, ISTQB Agile Technical Tester is another must because it allows you to utilize advanced software QA concepts and lead others to possibly eliminate even more defects.

So where does the ROI come in? If a certification helps your tester eliminate even one extra post-production software defect, the return on investment for their certification will exceed 1500% based on the estimated cost of a post-production software defect of $4,000. It's not hard to imagine that the knowledge gained in each ISTQB certification would allow a tester to eliminate one additional post-production defect, is it?
