Pie graph A Holistic View of Test Coverage

No single person on the team knows much about test coverage at a high level. Developers might understand it for parts of the code base they worked on.

Just as debt can be good and bad in everyday life (such as a home mortgage), debt in the engineering world can also be good and bad. This applies to quality engineering as well—with good and bad test debt. As testers, how do we create a balance and stay at the right test-debt quotient?

Bug in a circle with a line through it Stop Hoarding Bugs and Clean Up Your Backlog

Many testing organizations have bugs sitting in their bug-tracking tool gathering dust.
