Session: Use Flow Metrics to drive Business Results NOW
Your organization is creating a lot of metrics from many different sources. You likely have burn ups and burn downs, frequency of deployment, MTTR and other agile, lean and DevOps metrics. So what do you do with them? Are they used for meaningful business conversations? Do they drive continuous improvement of the flow of business value? This session describes the process and cultural characteristics necessary for using flow metrics to not only improve the flow of all product related work (features, defects, risks and debt) but more importantly run experiments to improve business outcomes in terms of value, quality, cost and happiness of the team and do it in a sustainable and repeatable way.
