This SkillsCast was filmed at Where is the Quality in Agility?

In partnership with QCon and Skills Matter, Dan North will give a talk on "Where is the Quality in Agility?". Dan proposes that quality applies on several levels: not only how well-written the software itself is, but the completeness of a solution and also its fitness for purpose.

Quality is one of those hot button words. When you talk about quality being variable it can make people very uncomfortable. ("You can flex scope, time or budget but quality is not negotiable!"

In this talk, Dan proposes that quality applies on several levels: not only how well-written the software itself is, but the completeness of a solution and also its fitness for purpose. Using these three levers, Dan argues that quality not only can be flexible, but should be, and demonstrates how being agile can give you control of those levers.
