Short Talk
ITEM:
What is the hardest part of Quality Engineering?
Andrii Dzynia:
Complexity in understanding what Quality is and how to satisfy all parties involved in its definition. Quality Engineering goes as a tracer bullet through the variety of technical tasks and organizational layers. Quality is widely misrepresented or misunderstood which leads to more social than technical challenges.
My passion has always been centered on building high-quality products. Satisfying a user, especially when thinking on a bigger scale, is challenging. Not to mention the variety of stakeholders who hold their own interest and keep things under pressure. Starting as a test engineer and playing various engineering roles along the way I yet to find anything that inspires me more. Building a product is a task, building the most efficient product that serves a request for many is a journey. Journey, which has enough in itself for life.

Why do you support ITEM conference and help with program and content of this event?
Andrii Dzynia:
ITEM inspired me about its mission to bring up awareness about cross-team collaboration within the organization. As an organization grows from a small business or a startup into a mid- large-size company communication and collaboration becomes a real challenge. Finding productive way to navigate the organization, breaking up silos and foster proactive ways of working is an issue. Speaking about Quality specifically, it concerns almost every aspect of the organization. What do we mean by Quality is rarely an easy question to answer. Only with tight collaboration between the different parts of the organization we can come closer to what it means building high-quality product and I believe that ITEM is on a path to facilitate this process.
