SCRUM Development in Regulated Environments

Agile methods in software development, such as Scrum, more and more dominate the classical waterfall and V-model approaches, to which Computerized System Validation has been oriented. It is commonly argued that using the Scrum method inhibits achieving the requirements for validation in regulated industries.

Nothing is further from the truth. Scrum strives to achieve the same quality results as the waterfall methods. As such, Scrum can be integrated into the Quality Management System when used in regulated industries.

CTG is offering a one-day workshop on how to work with the Scrum Framework in practice. The workshop will specifically highlight on how to bring Computerized System Validation activities on board of Scrum.


Currently no (other) upcoming dates are planned for this course


Course Objectives

The goal of this course is to learn how validation principles perfectly fit into Scrum, by means of several practical exercises.

Each participant will:

  • Receive an introduction into the world of Scrum, Regulatory Compliance, and Computerized System Validation;
  • Understand the concept and approach to develop a Quality Management System within the Scrum framework that supports Computerized System Validation;
  • Experience Scrum in a regulated environment by hands-on exercises;
  • Leave the workshop with a number of practical guidelines and recommendations on how to bring Computerized System Validation into Scrum.

At the end of the course, participants will be able to conduct their own Scrum in Regulated Environments project.

Typical Audience

While the focus of the workshop is mainly for Product Owners, Scrum Masters, Scrum Developers, and Validation Subject Matter Experts who want to leverage validation into the Scrum framework, any member of your organisation who is interested in how to use Scrum in a regulated environment would find this workshop useful.
