Real Agile Team Metrics LIVE: The Good, The Bad & The UglyJason Tice
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
I have the privilege of coaching a few teams building a product and I have the ability to show their real team metrics LIVE - I might add the team has also given me permission to show their metrics to others, as we know that some metrics that a team keeps may only be intended for use by the team (we’ll highlight what these metrics are in the session). Hence in this short demonstration session, we will pull up the team’s metrics live and see what’s going on - the "good" stuff and the "bad" stuff, as the reason to use metrics to guide team improvements is they tell us the TRUTH about what's really going on. We will look over metrics such as cumulative flow across the full value stream, story cycle time, story lead time, block time and others. We will go over how to review the data from multiple metrics and look for trends resulting from changes to the team and/or the team’s process - such analysis can stimulate lively discussion in team retrospectives so as to assess the impacts of changes the team makes to their process and also to identify adverse trends and/or bottlenecks to target with future changes and improvements. We will also review how the team’s data is communicated to other teams via a monthly Operations Review meeting focused on program-level / multi-team improvements where teams exchange information on what they are working to improve, why they are seeking to improve, and what indicators / metrics are being used to assess the impact of changes. Attendees will leave having observed a demonstration how to use quantitative data to achieve improvements using the scientific method.
