You Can't Improve What You Can't See

Add to calendar

From value stream mapping to burndown charts, making things visible is a core component of the continuous improvement process. But even with all this visibility, much of the data surrounding how your teams work is either not captured or not understandable. This data represents a great opportunity for insights and improvement. Think about it: Your management team tells you that your velocity is too low. What do you do? First, you need more information. What does “too low” mean? Why was the velocity low? Did the team deliver value? Brandon Carlson will share one team’s surprising insights when they analyzed previously invisible data. He'll also tell you how to discover what the highest risk areas of the system are for enabling the most cost-effective regression test strategy. It's all there, only tucked away where no one can see. Learn how to make the invisible, visible—and unlock the data that drives insights needed to truly inspect, adapt, and improve.
