Velocity Doesn’t Have to be a Dirty Word

Christy Clement is the co-founder of the agile coaching and training company Velocity Made Good. She shares with us how she first got started with agile, and the concept and work of her company – especially since “velocity” often gets a bad rap. But the company name is actually a sailing term, where you need to balance speed with direction. This is the approach she brings to her coaching and consulting work.

Clement also shares stories of personal agility building her house with her husband using a Kanban board, user stories, and an incremental move-in strategy. Her words of wisdom:

Rather than focusing only on being fast and efficient, “really think about, are we heading in the right direction, what are those business metrics that we’re really trying to affect – are we measuring them and are we having an effect?”
