Abstract/Description

There are more to Agile metrics than velocity and sprint burn-down charts. However, most Agile teams just focus on velocity and target story points which leads to executives misusing the metric and teams gaming the system. Velocity should stay within the team and there are other metrics that can be shared with executives and others that are outside the team. These metrics provide a more holistic view of the project’s overall health. The Agile Dashboard collects such metrics and acts as an information radiator giving us real time project updates on value, performance, schedule, scope, cost, quality, and team spirit. Come learn what to measure and for how long. Learn how to read warning signs and what corrective actions to take. Learn to setup your own Agile dashboard to arm yourself with the right information and make careful and constant adjustments to ensure forward and safe progress towards your final deliverable.
