Details

"How well is your delivery team doing?" That seems like a straightforward question, but it is more complicated that it might sound at first. Do we know what it means to "do well" or is it one of those things that is different to everyone?

In this session we will discuss how we can meaningfully measure outcomes and what we can learn from the measurements. We will also touch on common pitfalls and provide insight in how to avoid them.

You will walk away with information on how to design metrics for your own purposes, and get started with some concrete examples to measure productivity of a delivery team. In short, you will have all the information to answer "how well your team is doing" meaningfully.

-- Who is Gino Marckx?

In 2002, Gino started working with some of Belgium's most prominent Agile promoters. Very soon after that, he joined the Belgian XP/Agile User Group and became actively involved in promoting Agile techniques and practices, because he believes in their effectiveness.

When he moved to Canada in 2008, Gino co-founded the Toronto Agile Software Development Community and started travelling the world coaching individuals and organizations as they embrace the Agile mindset.

Gino strongly relies on his passion for team dynamics, his experience in leadership positions and his technical expertise. He currently is active as a management consultant at Xodiac, helping organizations to make their digital transformation matter. His lifetime mission is to ‘make every team thrive’.

He likes to spend his spare time with family and friends enjoying cycling, travel, art, music, poetry and bragging about the supreme quality of Belgian beer (although he recognizes that Canada has narrowed the gap significantly).
