Scrum or Kanban? Estimate in story-points or task-hours? Two-week iterations or three? What’s the optimal size for my Agile team? Are fluid teams a good idea? Or are stable better?
These are some of the critical questions that face teams and organizations at the outset of an Agile journey; questions that are too often answered from a base of intuition and folklore rather than objectivity and understanding.
Agilitics: Correlating Agile Practices to Performance is a provocative evening session with noted speaker Larry Maccherone that illuminates the impact our practices on performance.
Backed by the hard numbers of tens of thousands of teams from a pool of hundreds of thousands of projects, Larry’s findings serve to challenge convenitional thought with facts, evidence, and insights.
Maccherone considers 55 variables to form a predictive model of performance based upon a team’s context as well as their behaviors and practices.
The session also includes the numbers, so that we don’t just say, A is better than B. Rather, we can can say that A is a 24% improvement in Quality, but a 10% reduction in Productivity compared to B. This allows you to plug it into your own model and make informed tradeoff decisions.
