Measuring Agile Performance: Beyond Scope, Schedule and Cost Webinar
If agility is about delivering customer value by being flexible, then how can adherence to a traditional scope, schedule, and cost plan be the best way to measure performance? It can’t be. With pervasive change the norm, we can no longer “follow the plan with minimal changes.” Instead, our focus needs to be on successfully adapting to inevitable changes. We need to move beyond the classic Iron Triangle measures to an Agile Triangle that focuses on Value, Quality, and Constraints.
In this webinar recording, Jim Highsmith explores the necessity for and the rationale behind moving to this new set of agile performance measures. In 40-minutes, he touches on
- The components – value, quality, and constraints – of the Agile triangle;
- Why performance measures need to change for Agile to gain wide adoption;
- Why technical quality is so important;
- How focusing on a releasable product results in the most value for the least cost.
Are your Agile teams are asked to be agile, flexible, and adaptive, but then told to conform to planned scope, schedule, and cost goals? Are they asked to adapt – but inside a very small box? If so, be sure to watch this webinar to discover why, to bring true agile values to organizations you must change performance measures. Afterall, it’s not that scope, schedule, and cost are unimportant, but that value and quality are more important.
