Topic at PMCon#4: A3 retrospective - applying lean thinking (workshop)
We will start a master class with a warm-up, discussing who uses metrics and which ones, and which of them were useful or useless. Then we’ll consider the fundamental question: why do we need metrics, and what is their role in IT? Then, in a wider, practical lesson, we'll learn how to properly link the processes and problems of the real world with metrics, and, accordingly, how a reasonable selection of metrics can help to solve them. We'll finish the master class by discussing the conditions in which the use of metrics makes sense.
