Refreshing Schools of testing - A flow chart

I picked up this from one of my old notes  on schools of testing where I made a sketch in the form of some flowchart. While I was cleaning my book rack, found the paper with the sketch, I thought why not make it a blog post.

Starting thought  was about fundamental ideas about software testing especially in terms of objectives, tactics, outcome etc.

If you agree that there are differing "opinions" about software testing amongst practitioners, stakeholders and other parties in software eco-system - follow through the flow chart and see where you end up. Let me know your views on this.

Hey Shrini, thanks for a thought provoking post.

Unfortunately I believe I am missing something fundamental to the logic or reasoning behind the flow chart.

I don't understand the relevance of the questions or the resultant endpoints.

Do the "So what" endpoints relate to my world view of testing?

Thanks,

Duncs
