comment How do I convince management that we need a formal QA department?
Is there any value in speaking directly with the plant managers and selling the idea to them? Also is it possible you could speak with the actual budget holders in your company and explain the benefits to them? Looking back at your original post could you pull some metrics out of the 2 week drop cycle you are working within and then massage those metrics to show how a dedicated QA team/department could be used to make the development even leaner, i.e. leave the developers and BA's enough time to concentrate on what they are supposed to be doing?

A good answer there Stuartf - thanks. Reading into your answer I see a period of coaching, mentoring and education happening with our delivery teams.
