Abstract/Description

Do you have measurement dysfunction on your program? Are you trying to measure teams and extrapolate each team’s status to the program? That doesn’t work. Teams have personal status, and you can’t add them together to understand the program state. You can use a handful of program measurements that help everyone understand where the program is and where it’s headed.

Instead of trying to “scale” measurements, take a new approach. In this talk, Johanna will share program measurements—qualitative and quantitative—that show everyone the program state.
