Rev’ing the RPMs - Benchmarking Agility with Lukas Klose
Wondering how to measure agility of your teams and organizations? Wouldn't it be nice to know what question we are trying to answer? Being able to articulate and quantify progress and benefits realization of an agile transformation is enormously important as we work together to propel agility forward in organizations around the globe. In workshop format (learning from each other) we will not simply discuss a set of metrics to measure performance of teams. Rather it is about gaining a better understanding of what different types of metrics exist, how practices, culture, capabilities and benefits interact, and learning to choose the right type of metric for the right purpose. Bio Initially a software engineer in the financial, educational and retail sectors, Lukas Klose became a consultant, program manager, and director for various companies including Electronic Arts. It was at Electronic Arts he oversaw the transition of the web publishing department to agility. Impressed with the results of this transition he set out to help other companies reap the benefits of agility, joining agile42 in 2016 as a coach and trainer. He now works for the fourth largest Canadian insurance company as an agile coach, as well as teaching the agile leadership program at the University of British Columbia - Sauder School of Business since 2016.

    What we're about

    The Calgary Agile Methods User Group (CAMUG) meets the first Thursday of every month (September to May) at Innovate Calgary. CAMUG provides a focal point for the use of agile methods in software development organizations in Calgary. Our members include software developers, managers, business professionals, researchers, students, and people from all walks of life.

    The group has a local focus and our meetings promote networking within Calgary's agile community. We encourage members to ask questions, to offer to speak, to propose alternative meeting styles, and to participate fully. Each meeting starts with a half-hour "meet and greet" session where members can socialize and have fun. This is followed by a one hour talk by a distinguished guest.

    CAMUG was founded in 2002 by Dr. Frank Maurer (http://ase.cpsc.ucalgary.ca/ase/Frank.Maurer.php) and Dr. Grigori Melnik at the University of Calgary. Since then it has grown to be Calgary's largest technology user group as well as the longest running. Topics that have been presented in this user group include: Agile software development, Extreme programming (XP), Lean software development, Kanban method, Lean startup, and many industry experience presentations and lessons learnt presentations.
