System traps in software testing


I had written several times on this blog that from my perspective majority of testers today lack full Software Engineering Life-Cycle (SDLC) understanding. As a community we should also look at our projects not only through tester's eyes, but also acknowledge stakeholders goals & needs (focusing mostly on customers).  In the end our common goal is to make money for the company, not to ship bug-free software. Recently I read gripping book which may help in looking at software engineering from different angle: Thinking in Systems by Donella H. Meadows. It's not classic book about SDLC, but rather systems theory primer.
