A talk at the Agile In The City Bristol conference - November 06-08:
Agile metrics for predicting the future by Mattia Battiston (author of Team Guide to Metrics for Business Decisions)
Most teams need to answer questions like “When will it be done? What can I get by date X?”. However, common estimation approaches often fail to give us the predictability we want, and tend to introduce bad behaviours like hard deadlines and hiding uncertainty.
In this session, I’ll show you how, step by step and with real life examples, my team uses their historical data and metrics to forecast the future and answer these questions with confidence.
