What key factors affect quality in software development?

As part of my Masters Degree in Agile Computing, I attended a module in Project management last weekend at UCLAN in Preston.

We had a session covering Quality on the Sunday morning and were assigned the task of answering the
question "What key factors affect quality in software development ?" for discussion the next day.

I find Powerpoint a useful revision aide. Not for it's own sake but I find that if I create a presentation as if I
had to present it to others, I tend to take more care and think more deeply about the issues.

I have made no mention of standards such as ISO 9001 (or indeed ISO 90003) as they were not within the scope of the question.

If you are interested in Agile Development or Project Management and do not have three years (part time) to spend working on a
Masters Degree, then QA run the following courses that you will find very helpful:

Agile Project Management
Code: PBPAGAPM · Days: 2
Agile with PRINCE2 / PMI Project Management
Code: PBPAGPP · Days: 2
Agile/Open Unified Process Practitioner
Code: PBPAGOPP · Days: 3
Agile/Open Unified Process Awareness
Code: PBPAGOUPO · Days: 1
Agile Awareness
Code: PBPAGAW · Days: 1

Right. Time to get on with my assignment !

See you soon
