Agile metrics for predicting the future
Most teams need to answer questions like “When will it be done? What can I get by date X?”. However, common estimation approaches often fail to give us the predictability we want, and tend to introduce bad behaviours like hard deadlines and hiding uncertainty. In this lightning talk we’ll show you how teams can use their historical data and metrics to forecast the future and answer these questions with confidence.
