* Reduce the cost of change
This covers both the overall cost of the full development lifecycle and the cost of all the testing activities, such as performance testing or user acceptance testing
* Increase the speed of change
This covers reducing the elapsed time spent testing and the time spent on remedial work and operational maintenance
* Improve the governance of change
This is achieved through better business alignment of the testing a company performs and better management information from the testing activities throughout the projects and programmes.
