Some of these concerns could be a more or less like a statement and not necessarily an issue. But some how i have over hauled all the questions that I think need answers for.
1. After several release cycles, test suites can grow large and unmanageable
2. Code Bloat – duplicate code, unnecessary code, no common libraries
3. Test case redundancy
5. Customer scenarios increase testing complexity
6. Number of Testers per developer continues to rise
7. Lab costs rising
8. Harder to find good testers
--I disagree with this. The problem is that we don't make it attractive enough for good people to become testers.
9. Need Specialists
10.Need better training
11.When tools fall short, we revert to manual, which does not attract “best and brightest”
12. Testing career issues – historically in Testing, management was the only way to advance
--Back to the "testers are considered second class citizens" issue
Let me know your thoughts, we can discuss and come out with some pattern to address them.
