Beyond the Burn Down --- Tying Agile Metrics to What We Actually Care About
The first metrics that tend to come to mind in agile shops tend to be burn down charts, story points and maybe even some project management metrics around scope, schedule and budget. These universal metrics tell us a lot about the health and state of the project and process, but are they driving transformational, sustainable improvement in our teams and our culture? Are they helping us make the shift from DOING agile to BEING agile? How do we incorporate measures about the essence of what we actually care about? How do we measure around our core values? How do we measure around business value especially when the business is mission-driven or not-for-profit?
This session invites participants into a highly collaborative dialog to explore measuring in a way that focuses on making the shift from “doing“ to “being” metrics in an agile environment by connecting values to relevant performance indicators, which can then be used to derive metrics tied to the mission we actually care about.
