AFH 035: Data Driven Agile Coaching with Troy Magennis [PODCAST]


Ryan Ripley, Troy Magennis


Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley) and Troy Magennis (@t_magennis) got together to discuss Troy’s upcoming Agile 2016 talks:

  1. Data Driven Coaching – Safely Turning Team Data Into Coaching Insights
  2. Forecasting Using Data – Quickly Answering How Big, How long and How Likely

Troy covered 4 key metric categories: responsiveness, productivity, quality, and predictability. We talked about how to present these metrics in a meaningful way, and also covered how not to abuse teams with their data.

Troy brings a pragmatic approach to data and team metrics and gave me a lot to think about when it comes to pulling insights from data and driving coaching activities from what was learned.

He also blogs here and has some great metric and data content that expands on many of the topics we discussed on the show.

And then…we called it a night.
