Agile Metrics: Let NUM8ERS Tell the Story

Add to calendar

Agile metrics and dashboards enable agile teams and their leadership to measure time to market, quality, productivity, predictability, employee engagement, and customer satisfaction. But the key focus of agile metrics should be on the value delivered to customers. Instead of measuring what or how much we are doing, we have to look beyond vanity metrics and measure actionable metrics. Jagdish Karira will provide a practical approach for collecting metrics that enable transparency and help product teams transform their processes. He'll describe twelve metrics in detail, with examples, that are intuitive and paint a big picture for stakeholders. These metrics provide data-driven, meaningful, actionable information to improve time to market, cycle time, and quality and help us identify bottlenecks. You'll learn how to use agile metrics to improve culture and behaviors to scale an agile transformation at the enterprise level.
