Imagine yourself sitting down in a director’s office with a nervous feeling. “So, about those agile metrics I asked from you…”, she says. Your stomach churns and pulse quickens.
Whether you’ve worked as a manager, coach, or consultant, you’ve likely experienced conflict and confusion over metrics with agile. Traditional metrics which emphasize personal productivity drive negative behaviors, encouraging us to stay busy over working together to achieve goals. Meanwhile, leaders feel dissatisfied with popular “agile metrics,” such as velocity and burn-down charts, when they fail to provide the insights desired.
Are you interested in a different learning experience? You’re invited to participate in a debate about metrics and explore three problem scenarios we often struggle to measure. Using a model for organizational measurement as a guide, your input will provide the fuel for an inter-facilitator debate between an Organizational Coach and a Software Coach. From this shared conversation, you will discover which outcome oriented metrics solve organizational needs for performance, quality, and change. Clarity and prosperity between agile and metrics are not out of reach. Come find out how!
