Tip 13: Built quality in, have a discussion on what quality is and how it can be achieved.
Within Agile Quality is non-negotiable. Everything we finish should be of sufficient quality. But how do we build quality in? We can test a lot, but we’ll be far more effective if we design our feedback loops in the development lifecycle. In order to do so, we should understand when and how errors can be detected and agree on what we do when quality is insufficient. I hear a lot about shift-left and test automation, great. Additionally, I believe that many organizations will benefit from having mature dialogues about Built-in Quality feedback loops.
