Mapping SCRUM Methodology with ISO 9001:2008 standard

There is always a question in the forum, is it SCRUM methodology practices can be mapped to ISO 9001:2000 standard. The answer to the question is yes, we can. The mapping of the SCRUM Methodology to ISO 9001:2008 is as below (please correct me if am wrong in the mapping):

    Very good post, I was really searching for this topic, as I wanted this topic to understand completely and it is also very rare in internet, that is why it was very difficult to understand.

    Thank you for sharing this.

    I appreciate your post. I also wrote that SMS advertising provides a cost effective method of targeting promotions to specific customer profiles. You might want to remind customers of specific events or promotions, but for whatever reasons, SMS allows you to pass information directly to the right customer at very affordable prices and fast delivery.

    Good positng, but the more important issue is the mapping of *ALL* ISO 9001 elements to SCRUM, not to map SCRUM to ISO 9001 => so it’s the other way around (traceability of ISO elements). So, if you want to be compatible with an ISO 9001 certificate, you have to make sure, that *ALL* ISO 9001 elements are satisfied with the help of SCRUM.
    For example, according to your posting, the ISO 9001 element 4.2.1 woould not be satisfied which would constitute a problem here …

    I respectfully disagree with you. 4.2.1 is General requirements of documentation requirements of QMS. This would be your Quality Manual, Templates standards, Forms, and etc. To be more specific this is more of Qulaity Procedure for Quality Procedure. (i.e QP for QP). How do you format your Procedures, Policies, Forms, Templates, Checklist and etc in standard form.

      Hi, yes, and:
      I completely miss the quality and test manual / plan in the SCRUM methodology here.
      Where do the quality requirements come into play, what is the general strategy for achieving the desired quality, what is the testing strategy etc. – lots of other things missing as well. I will give you more examples later. There is a lot of additional documentation necessary – with the duties and artefacts alone as listed above you will never get an ISO 9001 certificate – I assure you – maybe I miss the issue that has been adressed in the post of 3 Sept 2010 … in this case, I apologize 🙂
