What’s a De-Mystery Thriller?

In the style of a pulp detective story, the secrets of Agile metrics will be de-mystified before your very eyes by detective Rally Metricson and his sidekick Larry Maccherone.

Welcome to Lean-Agile City. It’s a nice enough place — but there’s a new gang in town, and though they’re a well-meaning bunch, there’s a few of them named Intuition, Folklore, and Anecdote, and they’re not always so trustworthy… here’s how to keep away from them:

For the first time in Agile history, there’s solid research backed by hard numbers of tens of thousands of teams from a pool of hundreds of thousands of projects. Last year’s initial research focused on a handful of parameters that we could extract from existing data. From that data we found insights on practices that can help teams achieve up to:



  • 250% better Quality





  • 60% better Productivity



  • 40% better Predictability



  • 60% better Responsiveness



This year, we are looking at 35 total variables and have a fully predictive model of performance based upon the team's context as well as their behaviors and practices. With this model, we can make context-sensitive recommendations to target improvement efforts.

If last year's work was the first flight at Kitty Hawk, this year's is landing on the moon. And there's a great view of the big picture from up there.

A FINAL WARNING: DO NOT COME TO THIS SESSION UNLESS YOU ARE PREPARED TO HAVE YOUR MOST CLOSELY HELD BELIEFS ABOUT AGILE CHALLENGED WITH DATA.

What to expect:



  • A presentation of general findings from our first and second year of research



  • Introduction to the first-ever quantified and fully-predictive decision framework for targeting improvement and making agile practice decisions, including “what-if” analyses and recommendations personalized to each team’s specific set of practices.



  • Detailed but understandable numbers that use your own economic model to make informed trade-off decisions.
