It does not matter how nice-looking your documents are, or how good your plans are, if the tests do not measure up
Seven Contex-driven school rules:
1. The value of each practice depends on its context.
2. There is good practice in its own context, but there is no best practice which applies at all times.
3. People who work together are the most important part of how every project fi ts together.
4. The project is developed over time in a way which often cannot be predicted.
5. The product is a solution: if the problem is not solved, the product does not work.
6. Good software testing is a challenging intellectual process.
7. Simply through judgement and skill, put into practice together throughout the whole project, we can do the right thing at the right time in order to test our products effectively.
