Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

Agile offers great potential for improving medical device development, but what is Agile really? Why is it so hard to pin down? In medical device companies, it is common for QA and RA (and other areas such as hardware engineering) to object that Agile is not allowed or won’t work.

To answer these objections and unlock the productive power of Agile, we need to understand that the approach is not a single “pure” established method, but the application of several key principles, each aimed at achieving quality. Each company must determine what outputs to require, and how to apply the principles.

This webinar will provide you tools for responding for common objections to Agile, and give real-world examples of what medical device companies are doing about them.

Learning Objectives:

  • Overcoming objections to Agile practices
  • Being able to discuss the meaning of the Agile Manifesto
  • Understanding how Agile is not a method, but a mindset
  • Determining your next move to gain the benefits of Agile

  • Classic objections to Agile, and how to answer them
  • Basic principles of Agile, and why practices can and should vary
  • Clearing up confusion about what the Agile Manifesto means
  • How Agile principles and FDA expectations can work with each other (AAMI TIR 45)
  • Examples of device companies currently employing Agile approaches

  • Regulatory Affairs
