Scrum Agile Project Management

Increasing Velocity in a Regulated Environment

In regulated industries like Health Care you have to comply with standard operating procedures, heaps of paper work and frequent audits. Do these requirements conflict with the core tenets of Agile? How do you increase velocity in such regulated environments?

This presentation explains how PHT Corporation overcame these constraints and got to Agile. He will draw a picture of PHT’s operating environment and the applicable regulations for software development. He demonstrates how the required documentation can become a byproduct of the everyday work of a Scrum team and describes changes he initiated, such as shortening sprints, measuring team and stakeholder satisfaction, and increasing the focus on automation for testing and release documentation.
