Traditional approaches to quality and risk management involve quality gates, change control boards, feature freeze and code freeze milestones, and independent QA or Test groups. These approaches stabilize quality, but sacrifice agility. They don't work for Agile teams. Yet buggy fragile code is even more dangerous for Agile teams where so much is changing so often. This leads to the inevitable question: if the traditional approaches to quality and risk management don't work in an Agile context, what does?

Practices vary across organizations, but all successful teams emphasize the same underlying principles of fast feedback, high visibility, collaboration, and alignment. This talk examines various approaches Agile teams have taken to increase quality, mitigate risk, and ultimately ensure they are delivering the highest possible value for their stakeholders. Along the way you'll hear real world success stories and cautionary tales.
