Bug statistics are a waste of time

Gojko Adzic – Bug statistics are a waste of time:

"A frequent excuse for bug reports is that the management needs them to know the current quality status. […] Alan Weiss explained that nicely in Million Dollar Consulting:

"Quality, I patiently explain, is not the absence of something in management’s eyes, that is, defects, but the presence of something in the consumer’s eyes, that is, value."

Instead of reporting things that are easy to measure but have low value, why not spend a bit more time actually defining what quality is and report that?"
