Scaling Whole Team Quality (EN)

At ista International we implement the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). As a tester in the System Team I focus on end-to-end tests, which sometimes feels like a waterfall approach: feeling responsible for catching bugs and having the impression that teams work in an uncoordinated way.
While translating the Whole Team Quality Approach to our SAFe context I recognized our past improvements and initiated further changes.
In this talk, I will share my view on Whole Team Quality in a Scaled Agile context, the improvements we have already achieved, and the things we have adjusted recently.
