Agile Methods And Regulatory Conformance – A Marriage Made In Heaven Or A Fight To The Death?
Many reports talk of a ‘perfect storm’ of change battering our manufacturing industries. Behind this disruption is the deep penetration of new technologies integrated through software. Now while software developers have created a slew of agile methods to cope with rapid change there remains a belief that agile is an excuse for undisciplined behavior and is unsuited to regulated environments.
This presentation challenges this orthodoxy and shows how being lean and agile can coexist with conformance. The talk explores what it means to be agile, lean and compliant and is illustrated by case studies and tips learnt from hard won experience.
