Michael Mah, QSM Associates Inc.
How do you compare the quality and productivity that teams achieve with across the span of projects, be they Agile, Waterfall, or Outsourced? Join Michael Mah to learn about quality and defect metric trends and how defect patterns behave on real projects. In hands-on exercises, learn how to replicate these techniques to make your own comparisons for time, cost, and quality. Working in pairs, calculate productivity metrics using the templates Michael employs in the QSMA consulting practice.
As a result you will take back new ways for communicating to key decision makers the value of implementing modern development practices, be they Agile, Lean, Kanban, and/or SCRUM. Attendees will also take home a complimentary temporary use license of the QSM SLIM-DataManager utility for self-study and further use back at their companies, using the methods learned.
When the workshop is completed, the attendees will be able to:
- Capture Agile and Waterfall Key Metrics on productivity, time-to-market, and defect rates.
- Use these metrics for insightful release retrospectives
- Create your own trends for your teams
- Understand their use for release estimation and planning.
