The V-Model: Reflections

Reflecting on this model I see some great benefits for PMs and BAs.

Firstly, PMs and BAs don't always come with technical qualifications and so this model gives an accessible view into what testers are actually doing with their time. It also shows that there is a whole framework in place and that people are not just reacting to the work of the developers.

It also provides a way for PMs/BAs to increase their clarity and accountability when reporting to stakeholders o progress and issues. For example, how do you assess a risk or issue without understanding it properly.
