Workshop: Agile Validation in GMP projects – Onboarding a QA into the validation concept
An online meeting between the Validation Expert, the Vendor SME and the QA of the LIMS project. The QA is new and needs to take over the responsibility from his predecessor who left the company. He knows agile framework from the theory and has only supported classical V-model validation projects.
See how the Validation Expert and the Vendor SME explain him the agile project setup and the validation concept in order to get the commitment of the new QA for the project.
IT landscape in companies changes extremely fast and it is necessary to be able to react quickly to these changes.
Agile approaches are nowadays very commonly used in many areas where SW development is used to be able to overcome these frequent changes and to ensure that business needs are clearly understood.
Still, in a GxP regulated environment, Agile approaches tend to not be applied because of wrong assumptions/understanding: Agile is NOT about Chaos, Freestyle, Absence of Documentation, as one can often hear.
In reality, successfully applying agile methodology always requires even more precise process definition for team collaboration as one would do in a classical V-model approach.
In this session, you will learn how the advantages of agile methodologies can be applied within GxP validation projects.
11:30 – 12:00 am CEST
