Thanks for visiting my site! My name is Randy Rice and my goal in developing this site is to equip you to do your job better as a software tester, test manager or Quality Assurance (QA) professional. You will find articles, conference presentations, tutorials, book reviews, a glossary and other resources to help you in your journey in software testing.

I have been in the trenches of software testing and QA. I've spent the last 30+ years of my life designing, building and testing information systems. I have experienced the joys of success, but have also learned the bitter lessons of failure. In fact, many of my articles, courses, and conference sessions were born out of past lessons learned. I have included many of those lessons in the book "Surviving the Top Ten Challenges of Software Testing."

In these tough economic times, we can help you get the most value from your IT budget and do more with less. Contact me today to see how you can profit from my services.

 I'm not your ordinary consultant and trainer. I only work with people who are serious about getting results. I use a holistic approach to software quality by looking at all aspects of your organization: people, process and technology, not just technology alone. I work with you, not against you.

You can find other consultants and trainers that provide lesser service for a lower rate. But if you are looking for expert knowledge, high value and excellent service, I invite you to contact me for a no-cost initial consultation about your situation.

I conduct public training sessions four to five times per year in the U.S., with the rest of my training conducted in private companies. For you folks in India, the Philippines, China, etc., I typically don't conduct courses there. I do, however, have e-Learning options for your consideration. If you are in Europe, contact me if you are interested in an in-house course. With the currency exchange rate, it's like getting my training at a huge discount!

If you would like to keep up with what we are doing and learn more about testing, sign up for our free newsletter, The Software Quality Advisor. You can do this on the right-hand side of this page.

I hope you enjoy exploring around on the site. If you don't see what you are looking for, please contact me. I have lots of valuable and relevant information here about software testing and software quality!

Best regards,

Randy Rice
