Agile software development is a light framework that focusses more on early value delivery and incremental improvement than traditional tasks like detailed up-front planning, comprehensive specifications and technical documentation. But from the perspective of regulatory compliance, this planning and documentation serve a purpose.

How can we reconcile agile approaches that value a working product over documentation with the need to meet regulatory requirements for, e.g. medical devices or telecommunications? I will discuss how to bring together the apparently conflicting needs of regulatory compliance and agile, and show by example how agile teams actually approach tough regulatory requirements in finance ...

Since years I work as external Agile Coach. From the beginning I searched for a good definition on what is agile coaching and was never satisfied on what I found. In this blog post I want to describe my understanding of our way of agile coaching and what is makes essential for our success at our client.

One definition of coaching: “Coaching is unlocking a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping people to learn ...
