Shortening the QA feedback cycle is crucial for project success because it minimizes re-work and maximizes the potential for delivering the right functionality. The ideal way (… to the best of our current knowledge…) to do this is Test Driven Development. However, introducing TDD in environments with large amounts of legacy code and/or late during project delivery is very hard to do.

The article suggests other ways of shortening the feedback cycle which have the potential to yield short-term improvements while serving as preparatory steps towards full test driven development.
