TOPIC: Agile Execution Health Check Workshop – How to leverage Agile metrics to understand your teams
ABSTRACT: Learn how to judge the health of your Agile teams by doing a health check with real customer case study data. We’ll look at data on team performance based on various Agile metrics such as Burnups/Burndowns, Cumulative Flow Diagrams, Velocity Chart, SDPI charts, and more. This will help to interpret possible challenges the team is facing and determine prescriptive action items that will influence improvement.
We’ll examine how to mine for internal performance data, evaluate what we can deduce from actions happening outside the boundaries of agile practices and pinpoint areas that will have the most impact on future projects and get them back on track. The goal is to turn work into data, data into insights and insight into action.
