Agile Team Metrics: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly


Agile Metrics can be an extremely useful tool to promote transparency to the business while providing quantitative insight into a team’s performance and maturity.  They can facilitate conversations regarding velocity, forecasting and predictability while creating measurable goals and encouraging accountability as team’s move forward on their quest for continuous improvement…

This course explores the many benefits of using effective Agile metrics (The Good), introduces metrics which should be avoided (The Bad) and the all-too-often ways good metrics are used for evil (Ugly).  We will highlight ways to ensure total team visibility and discuss the importance of educating outside observers on the meaning behind the numbers.
