Defining Quality Engineering has been a journey.
We had a deep desire to excel at valuable software delivery, mixed with a frustration of a lack of transversality in the ecosystem.
The first definition circles around QE being more than testing, quality assurance, but then, where does it starts and ends?
The collaboration of the QE Unit community finally resulted in the book, On Defining Quality Engineering, as the way to achieve Quality at Speed software.

On Defining Quality Engineering
Software defines the speed of business changes and survival capability in the digital world and actors unable to meet the challenges and high-standard of digitalization will disappear.
The acceleration required creates tremendous pressure that traditional software approaches like Design Thinking, Agile and DevOps contribute but are not enough to be systematically applied along the software value-chain.
A systematic way of restraining our entire software lifecycle to Quality at Speed software is a must-have requirement to survive the digital transformation.
This paradigm shift of building and delivering software is Quality Engineering.
