Asking the Right Questions: Make Metrics Work for Your Team
Metrics should be helping us ask the right questions, not answering them. On agile teams, we are constantly gathering and providing metrics. But how do we frame them in the minds of our teams? Instead of just talking about what metrics we're gathering, let's talk about why we're gathering and what the team gets out of them. We will raise questions about how we can help teams ask the right questions and encourage managers to do the same.
Outline/structure of the Session
We will review common agile metrics, how they can be looked at, and how we can help frame teams and managers to use them to ask the right questions.
Agile leaders, managers, and team members will have a clear reason why they keep certain metrics, the ability to be critical of why they keep other metrics, and ask good questions when look at their team's metrics.
