If you are asking this question, then this writing is especially dedicated to you.
Regression Testing can become one of the most critical elements of your test artifacts and can prove to be the most preventative of all measures you can take in your organization.
Many quality organizations will publish that regression testing is part of their testing life cycle and a core ingredient in their test cases before moving deliverables to production. But how strong is the regression test suite in your organization? How well are you monitoring your test suite to maintain relevance?

Through my many years in QA, I have experienced many epiphanies about quality, testing and what these terms actually mean to business owners and end users. After 20+ years working for both large multi-national and small companies across several industries, I have become intensely aware of how business goals and objectives drive the many dimensions of measuring business value and quality. The nature of the end product/application will dramatically affect how quality is defined and therefore as testers, one's approach and understanding of how to relate and articulate this will be instrumental in ensuring results have accurately validated attainment.
