Everyone’s had at least one software project release off schedule and over budget. But while delays may seem like a ubiquitous hardship for software testing/QA teams, they don’t need to be. In our upcoming June 29th webinar, we’ll delve into why projects so frequently get blown off course, and break down the steps you can take to get them back on track.

No matter what we do to avoid it, there are always times when we feel stressed out and overwhelmed. When that happens, what do you do? Here's what our President and CEO, Jeff Van Fleet, recommends.
If the 3 Perils of Software Development™—Defects, Delays, and Dollars—are regularly driving your projects off schedule and over budget, getting your QA and testing team back on course can be hard. That’s why applying a metrics-based testing methodology is so important—it’s the most reliable course correction there is.
We’ve said it a thousand times, “Test automation can cut your testing budget in half.” But while we’re so focused on value, are we forgetting the little things—like future-proofing your testing effort by preserving your SMEs’ valuable knowledge?
But despite our best efforts to avoid high-pressure situations, we inevitably find ourselves dealing with them. Since we can't avoid them, Jeff Van Fleet (Lighthouse's President and CEO) shares his philosophy on leadership under pressure.
