Metrics That Matter: Improving Lean and Agile, Kanban and Scrum
Wednesday, August 1, 2012 from 8:30 AM to 9:30 AM (PDT)
Metrics That Matter: Improving Lean and Agile, Kanban and Scrum.
This session is born of the hard lessons learned from years of working with diverse companies using metrics to improve their software development processes. Come learn from successes and be warned of failures. This session will cover what makes an effective metric, the pitfalls in designing metrics, and the basic principles for using metrics appropriately. We will cover many general principles, but will dive deeply in the metrics needed for lean and agile software practices, using Kanban and Scrum as our representative methodologies. You will leave with a number of good metrics and how to collect them, and more importantly, you will leave with a deepened understanding of why measuring the right things is critical, and how to measure those things.
