Troy Magennis is a consultant to major companies on Agile implementation and portfolio planning, and a seasoned conference speaker. He was a keynote speaker at Agile2018 on the topic of data, which for the first time was approved as a track by the Agile Alliance this year.
Magennis says part of being a good Agile coach is understanding data, although data can be inconvenient because it doesn’t always show what we want it to show. He walks us through the metrics that you really need to capture and why.
“If it doesn’t help you with a decision, or it doesn’t help you observe that something’s going off the rails earlier, it’s a vanity metric.”
