Agile Techniques
The Agile Dashboard

There is more to agile metrics than velocity graphs and burn-down charts. However, most agile teams focus just on the velocity of implementing story points which leads to management’s misusing the metrics and to teams’ gaming the numbers. Additional metrics can provide a more holistic view of the project's overall health. Fadi Stephan shares the agile dashboard, which collects such metrics and acts as an information radiator to give real-time project updates on value, performance, schedule, scope, cost, quality, and team spirit. Learn what to measure and for how long. Discover project warning signs and what corrective actions you need to take. Learn to setup your own agile dashboard to arm yourself with the right information to make careful and constant adjustments, ensuring forward and safe progress toward your final deliverable.
