Agilelistics – A Metric Driven Approach

What if everything we thought we knew about agile was wrong?

The nature of agile continually changes, which means its analysis must also keep pace. Agilelistics is for practitioners, thinkers, and theorists of agile.

The data analytics revolution and agile metrics gather around agile teams, has become agile's new language and currency.

What is Agilelistics? Agilelistics is the practice where metrics is used to drive the entire product development cycle. The use of just-in-time metrics to drive rapid, precise and granular product iterations. In an organisation who uses metrics, where everything from performance to usage patterns is measured. Every single decision is used by the development team is based on metrics.

Steve Morgan helps you to decipher the statistical data, and to use it to uncovering agile's hidden truths.

  • How do I know my team is improving?
  • How many story points should my team tackle per sprint?
  • How can I fix my team’s estimations which are currently not accurate?
  • Is velocity a true measure of an agile team’s performance?

Through a blend of entertaining storytelling, agile metrics and analysis, This Agilelistics session will answer common questions about measuring agile team performance.
