This is a recording of my talk at the Scrum Master Meetup Cape Town in July 2021. It was a great session with a lot of participants! Thanks again to Clive for inviting me and setting it up.
So what was my talk about? It’s about measuring agile!
In today’s (agile) world it’s all about measuring. Data-driven approaches are gaining more and more popularity. Many new key performance indicators (KPI) are coming up. It’s not only about measuring internal team success but also the reaction and relation to our customers and users. All this is great. It gives us insights to develop “the right thing”.
But aren’t we pushing it a little too far? Aren’t we ending up controlling people?
Based on real industry examples we want to explore together the world of KPI in the setting of agile work environments. In the video you will understand the opportunities and threats and get known to the most important metrics for agile teams. Moreover, you will learn about a practical approach to measure, analyse, and use KPI in agile teams.
This talk is for everyone who wants to understand the power of KPI and use them positively.
