You have code you don't want to change because it will likely cause bugs, but the business requires the code to evolve. Refactoring is a common solution, but it can itself introduce bugs. Marian Hartman (formally Willeke) will present empathy-based techniques (Arlo Belshee's risk tagging and Naming as a Process) that make refactoring successful, and will facilitate how managers can tell the impact of those techniques.
