Quality – Small Business IT woes.
Till date I have had one developer on my team , fresher who wrote the code with Zero defects once, I mean it passed all the quality testing at the first go. I am not sure if he repeated that feat ever again.
That brings the important question how do you shop for quality IT.
Are you a small business looking to hire somebody to develop your website/mobile app ?
Do you hire from freelancer or other such site and hope to meet that developer that will deliver zero defects product.
Here’s 3 step plan you can follow to ensure Quality
- Define what quality means to you.
- Ask how do they typically measure quality ? If you cant measure it you can’t improve or track it.
- Ask who does the quality assurance – testing if its a single developer.
- Know that quality comes at a cost, but you don’t have to compromise on quality.
#Tip work with small businesses with team size of 2 + who have the necessary experience and process to deliver quality at right price and cost.
