“Cost of quality” is a term that’s widely used – and widely misunderstood. The term isn’t the price of creating a quality product or service. It’s the cost of NOT creating a quality product or service. Every time work is redone, the cost of quality increases. The cost of quality is in software development dependent on a lot of different factors, but most often software companies attack this purely by introducing extensive test processes rather than focusing on the factors that ultimately decide the amount of testing that is necessary.
To RangstrupIT, the most important factor is the quality of people that are added to the development team. Where other software companies often compromise on the people they hire, RangstrupIT simply does not hire anything but the best. This also means that our manpower expansion is a lot slower than our competitors, but the people we finally decide to hire excel in terms of technical knowledge, problem solving skills, and – not least – in terms of commitment to the responsibilities they are given.
Better people make less errors. Better people ask better questions. Better people foresee the weaknesses and problems that may be the result of a design and take proactive initiatives to solve these. Better people ensure that less things need to be fixed over time and that the cost of quality remains world leading. The result of RangstrupIT’s dedication to getting the best people is a “time-to-market” for the products that we develop that keep on impressing our customers.
