Testing needs to be done at each phase of the delivery cycle right from the requirements gathering phase. It cannot be an after thought or done once the product has been developed.
There are multiple examples which demonstrate the focus on quality right from get go has helped rectify the problems in requirement thus leading to huge cost and time savings

Software Testing & QA processes have been matured over a last decade. Lot’s of brainstorming have been done by the industry leaders to define, implement and measure each of the Test processes effectively.
It is very important that Testing activities should take place at all stages of the life cycle, including reviews of the requirements and designs. The goal should always be to prevent the defects instead of catching them at later stages. Also, the Test Optimization is a critical & must to implement process – At each iteration, we need to review the test plan and try to filter/optimize the tests; based on the current health of the product, past test results and using the experience & expertise on the product under test.
Are we doing the rights things in a right manner? We should discuss this question at every stage of the product development.
Moreover, I personally feel that customizing the processes as per your Organization’s structure & need is a must to do thing. In relation to Test Maturity, it is advisable to go through both the CMMi & TMMi processes; evolve them, refine them and finally implement them to have biggest return on your investment.

Other than introductory modules, there are test planning, test designing, test execution and general modules.

Getting the QA Testing started as early in the process as possible should have the greatest payback because you find defects early and preferably prevent defects from getting out the door.
