9 Characteristics of Integrated Software Quality Engineering – Part 1

A process is a set of defined tasks needed to complete a given business activity, including who is responsible for completing each step, when, and how they do so. Not all processes are important but the ones that have the following characteristics are:
  • Executed often or used repetitively
  • Directly determine your costs or your customer satisfaction
  • Underlie your business growth
  • Deliver something of value to someone outside of the process
  • Create value for the organization operating the process
  • Align with corporate values and strategy

In this three-part series we will cover 9 essential characteristics of Integrated Quality Software Engineering (IQSE).
