Agile project management is a recursive and incremental method of managing the design and build activities for information technology, product/ service development, engineering projects in a highly nimble, end user focused and interactive manner. Agile methods came into existence in response to challenges experienced in more sequential forms of project organization/ management. In the Agile method, small portions of the deliverables are completed within each work sequence/ delivery cycle and the work product is progressively improved within an overall iterative life cycle where deliverables are submitted in stages. Agile is popular in technology projects where the project may be complex and where end users may experience difficulty defining long term requirements without being able to view and interact with progressive prototypes. The incremental, iterative work sequences referred to above are commonly known as sprints in agile software development.
Many of us work in a regulated environment. Very recently the medical devices have come under the scrutiny of the Health Authorities. Please attend this meeting to find out what happened, what is being done about it and how pertinent regulation have been changed. Many of you probably don’t know what a medical device is. Believe or not a felt tipped pen would be considered a medical device if a surgeon uses it to draw on a patient to indicate an incision point. Come to this meeting and be educated as to new ideas and trends .

access information about upcoming events, newsletters and more, and to join
discussion groups and provide ideas and feedback through communications via the
site. Portions of our myASQ will also be
accessible to the general public as well.
By the end of the year, we will eventually transition from our current
public website to having everything available through our myASQ Community. One
of the main benefits of the myASQ community is the ability to expand your
network and connect with others. The
member directory and connections are exclusive member benefits. Other benefits include access to ASQ news and
