Where is the Quality in Agility?

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.
