How might you answer the question “when will it be done?” What about “how long will this take?” These can be critical questions in helping decide if we should do something, along with starting a conversation with customers and stakeholders. Since we don’t have a crystal ball, we don’t know exactly what the future holds. But all hope is not lost. There is an option.
In this talk, Kevin will share an introduction to how flow metrics can be collected and then used to improve predictability and allow for effective forecasting. He’ll share some real-world examples of how powerful this data can be, how it can be introduced within an organization, and how it can be used to help teams improve discussions with their stakeholders and customers.
