Self-organizing teams that create and own their own processes? — what a concept! How could that possibly work? How can we trust a team to self-organize in a way that supports the outcomes important to the organization and its customers? Self-organization requires at a minimum a shared understanding of the team’s goal. Add to that shared understanding clarity around a definition of success and how we measure success and we have set the environment for effective self-organization. So, what role does metrics play in guiding, enabling, and supporting an Agile team? How do we know that we’re making progress in an Agile context? What does an Agile success look like? Join us for a look at metrics through an Agile lens.
