About this Book


In this book I hope to show you how to use the data you’re already generating to make your teams, processes, and products better. The goal of the book is to teach your agile team which metrics it can use to objectively measure performance. You’ll learn what data really counts, along with where to find it, how to get it, and how to analyze it. Because meaningful data may be gathered or used by any part of an agile team, you’ll learn how all team members can publish their own metrics through dashboards and radiators, taking charge of communicating performance and individual accountability. Along the way, I hope you’ll pick up practical data analysis techniques, including a few emerging Big Data practices.


The first part introduces the concepts of data-driven agile teams: how to measure your processes and how to apply it to your team. Chapter 2 is an extended case study that takes the concepts from the first chapter and shows them in action on a fictional team.
