This workshop will provide attendees with hands on experience on measuring, understanding and making the most of metrics both in terms of effectiveness and improving teams processes.
We will mix theory and practice drawing also from attendees experience. We will look at how a Service Oriented Mindset leads to Service Oriented Metrics.
We will discuss the pitfalls of typical metrics like velocity and we will look, using practical examples, at alternatives that will help us in improving effectiveness. These include lead time, throughput, WIP, batch size, slack, etc. and their relationships.
