GQM Approach

John Tanner is going to be at Agile 2018 delivering his talk entitled: Agile Metrics – The GQM Approach. The session will take place on Wednesday, August 8 at 10:45 AM. If you’re new to GQM, it stands for Goal – Question – Metrics—which has been John’s key area of focus for quite some time. If you’re working towards gaining clarity around what data to collect at the different levels of your organization—and what to do with the information those metrics provide—John’s session is one you won’t want to miss.

In this episode of SoundNotes, John provides a quick preview of some of the topics he’ll be covering during his session in San Diego and some of the new elements he’s included based on using these techniques in the field.
