Software Testing Paradox

A few generally accepted facts:
1. There are more ways to do/get something wrong
2. Software development is a team work
3. Combinatorial probability of getting everything right by everyone is very low
4. There are many ways to break a system than using it right

This would lead one to believe that effort in testing should be more than development. Then, why is number of software testers in a typical software development organization, and person hours spent in testing, is far too low compared to coding?

I believe, now is a right time to introspect as we take a pause and look forward to a new beginning

Watch discussion on this, in groups Software Testing Club and Software Testing and Quality Assurance groups  in Linkedin
