CEOs are concerned about losing their jobs due to a software failure. Thank goodness for testers!
CEOs Are Worried About Software Failures
Your CEO Should Thank You!
If you are a certified tester, does your CEO know how valuable you are? Share these survey results and studies with your CEO:
77% of CEOs surveyed said that software failures have harmed their company’s reputation in the last five years.
Perhaps for that reason, 95% of CEOs say they are concerned about losing their jobs in the wake of a software failure.
A separate study found that the combination of defect prevention, pre-test defect removal, and formal testing by certified personnel can top 99% in defect removal efficiency while also lowering costs and shortening schedules.
By comparison, that same study found that untrained personnel such as developers seldom top 35% in defect removal efficiency for any form of testing.
Based on this, one would think your CEO should thank you! When you earn your ISTQB certification through ASTQB, you protect your company, your career, and your CEO!
