Seven Excellent Basic Principles of the Context-Driven Testing

I remember following Seven Parables for Context-Driven testing read from an excellent book on Software Testing needing no formal introduction..

Principle 1: The value of any practice depends on its context.

Principle 2: There are good practices in context, but there are no best practices.

Principle 3: People, working together, are the most important part of any project's context.

Principle 4: Projects unfold over time

in ways that are often not predictable.

Principle 5: The product is a solution. If the problem isn't solved, the product doesn't work.

Principle 6: Good software testing is a challenging intellectual process.

Principle 7: Only through judgment and skill, exercised cooperatively throughout the entire project, are we able to do the right things at the right times to effectively test our products.

The above principles had been described in a wonderful book Titled: "Lessons Learned in Software Testing-A context Driven Approach" by Cem Kaner

These principles fascinated me & I am sharing with my readers.
