March 12th: What We Could/Should Measure and Why

Presented by Troy Magennis

Note: This meeting will be held on the second Tuesday of the month to accommodate schedules

This session will cover the types of measures to use in Agile to measure a cross-section of performance - not just delivery speed, but customer value and quality as well. Some specifics:

  • The five basic commandments of measuring teams

  • The six dimensions to measure to achieve "balance"

  • Measurement Polarities - how we can tell if we are overdoing any one metric target

  • Align and achieve intended outcomes using metrics and measurements
