Why Q/A should not report to development?

50% - reports to Senior IT Manager - This is the best positioning because it gives the Quality Manager immediate access to the IT Manager to discuss and promote Quality issues, when the quality manager reports elsewhere, quality issues may not be raised to the appropriate level or receive the necessary action.
25% - reports to Manager of systems/programming
15 % reports to Manger oprerations.
10 % outside IT function.
