No it is not the answer. The amount of testing we can do will always outrun the number of people who can do it. There is always more testing that one can add to try and assure that less defects are in the system. However, that will only take you so far. Inserting less defects in the first place and better planning to concentrate the resources where they are required is a better solution. Next week we will look at the demographic dividend as it relates to testing (and a lot of other industries).
