Event description

Description

Agile transformations, like globetrotting adventures, are never predictable. And like any pioneering journey, success hinges on your ability to adapt to changing priorities and conditions in a systematic and objective way. Agile metrics enable that ability.

Around the World of Agile Metrics is a 1-day workshop that will cover the entire lifecycle of a Lean/Agile metrics process, from metric selection to gathering, reporting, and interpreting data.

Through a tour of industry trends, hands-on activities, and real-world case studies you’ll discover how agile metrics can be reliable instruments to

  • align your teams,
  • inform your strategy, and
  • guide your product journey to achieve the outcomes you and your customers care about.

You will leave this workshop with a deep understanding of a wide range of Lean/Agile metrics concepts including: common metrics, probabilistic forecasting, using metrics to inform business decisions, and basic data science for use in your own organizations.


Topics Covered

  • Use of metrics to engage and influence co-workers, stakeholders, and executives
  • How probabilistic forecasting can create alignment between IT and business
  • Common decision-making biases and how data visualization helps to overcome them
  • Economic impact of lowering Work in Progress (WiP)
  • Maintaining and reading burn-down and burn-up charts
  • Optimal iteration length and team size for your economic context
  • How to avoid “metrics gaming” by members of your team
  • How to understand a cumulative flow diagram and extract Work in Process (WiP), Time in Process (TiP), and Throughput metrics from it


Who Should Attend?

Executives or managers wanting a better understanding of Agile metrics and analysis; Product Managers guiding an agile development team, people responsible for Lean/Agile project planning and reporting; or team members interested in expanding their knowledge on metrics and analytics in Scrum, Lean, Kanban or ScrumBan processes.
