Agile Metrics, Reporting and Diagnostics – Talk by Giora Morein

[slideshare id=7603655&doc=metricsanddiagnostics-agileisrael2011bygioramorein-110412121525-phpapp01]

The session explores reporting and diagnostics options for Agile projects. Traditional project performance reporting stress conformance to plan. Because Agile projects favor adaptability over plan conformance, the fundamental reporting objectives are inevitably different. Agile reporting stresses productivity while constantly striving to provide an honest and unobstructed view of the program and the product. Agile metrics and reports should serve as diagnostic tools – tools to support reliable decision-making. This session explores some of the different reporting and metric options on Agile projects as well as how to analyze these to better understand how a team and project are faring. This introduction to multi-level Agile metrics introduces examples of product, program, release and iteration-level metrics.
