Quite often in the world of agile, the simplest questions are often the most difficult to answer:
- “How close are we to releasing?”
- “How large is this feature, relative to work we’ve done previously?”
- “Is the team investing their time in accordance with the priorities we originally laid out?”
We often try to unearth these insights using extracts of data from digital work tracking tools such as Jira, Trello, or AgileCraft to name a few. However, it can be difficult to aggregate this information using conventional means. There can also be inconsistencies in the way the tool is used which can skew the results. What if there is poor hygeine or data quality in the system, isn’t that something we would also want to see?
How can we quickly move past these limitations, and start having informed conversations around the state of our portfolio?
