Metrics in an Agile World



James Shore and Rob Myers help you examine the role of metrics on Agile teams. We take a broad survey of metrics being used on Agile projects, both traditional and innovative, and look at the value and dangers to the success of the team. We look at how the simple act of measuring, itself, can be harmful, and when it is well-justified.


Rob Myers is lead instructor and co-founder of Agile Institute. Rob has been training and coaching teams in Agile practices and object-oriented programming since 1999. James Shore is an XP/Agile consultant and practitioner who has been leading agile teams in success and failure since 1999.
