What will you learn?
Starting with agile is easy, but measuring agile right is hard. How do we know if we're still on track, for instance? How do you even define "on track" in an agile project?
There are so many ways you can monitor the progress of an agile project, it's normal to feel overwhelmed. Measuring agility might very well be one of the biggest challenges you'll face, but luckily I'm here to help and advise you. We will look at ways to measure progress in an agile project from different standpoints.
During most agile transformations, metrics are a hot topic. They are used to track progress and visualize improvement. "Are we fast enough?" "Is our product good enough?"
What does it measure and how to choose?
This course helps you with both questions.
To do so, we go over five different metric groups, based on a spreadsheet created by the tutor. For each encountered group, the most valuable, surprising and interesting measures are explained. The groups we'll discuss are:
- Build the right thing
- Build it right
- Build it fast
- Do it on time
- Keep doing it
Make the most of your experience with 7 videos and a spreadsheet containing the used metrics
Beware: the purpose of this course is not to go over each measure in detail. This spreadsheet was created to help you discover and measure progress and improvement within your team and project.
