How low do you go?

How low do you go?

A survey* sponsored by the Australian Computer Society, found the following percentage allocation for software testing:
5% allocate more than  40% of the initial development budget to testing

25% allocate between 10 -19% of the initial development budget to testing

25% allocate between 20 – 29% of the initial development budget to testing

14% allocate between 30 – 39% of the initial development budget to testing

12% allocate less than 10% of the initial development budget to testing

I’ll leave you to make up your own mind about these stats.
