This past November, the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Healthcare Working Group held a workshop on the agile systems development process for medical device developers. The goals of this workshop were straightforward: bring together a small number of companies in the medical device industry to discuss the application of agile practices within the scope of systems engineering and product development, scaling the agile manifesto to apply to more than just the software discipline. Those in attendance, a mix of engineers and managers from some of the largest device manufacturers, sought to find avenues to better understand and advance agile practices in systems engineering.
