Thanks for the feedback. This is the sort of feedback I was hoping for, so I can be prepared before I meet with our QA guy. :-) To answer your question, we have one QA guy and I'll need to refine these notes before I meet with him. As you might expect, he's more interested in process than I am, his primary concerns being things like "how should we enforce the coding standard?". In the past, we've sorta had coding standards (actually, too many of them) and informal code reviews, but they've never been enforced consistently across the organisation, especially when deadlines are tight.

    One way to enforce code quality and integrity in the process is to choose a process model that can facilitate it. Agile methods are good at it. Especially I would recommend looking at Scrum and pay attention to the Definition of Done.

    A self guiding process is the best tool to get teams happy, efficient and committed. This includes code quality and standards. I would not dictate them except on a very high level (setting some thresholds). IMO the tools do not matter that much, the result is what I would be interested in. And a good process that includes tools for correcting bad ways of working is priceless.
