Good metrics can help a team continuously improve and deliver consistently, while poor metrics can create a culture of fear; this video shows how to measure Agile teams effectively and help create an environment that maximizes value and learning.


Finding the right balance of metrics for your Agile teams can significantly help your continuous improvement efforts, forecasting, and risk management on software development projects. Instilling curiosity about performance data—instead of dreading arbitrary performance goals—is the best way to promote a culture of continuous improvement. This video will guide you through how best to incorporate metrics into your teams and organizations to diagnose issues, unearth trends, predict issues, and apply historical results to prescribe preventative actions. You will also learn multiple techniques and approaches for creating data visualizations that make your metric reporting clear and impactful.
