Effective metrics play an important role in ensuring the success of a software project. In this 13-video course, learners will discover how metrics are used to evaluate projects and explore various types of Agile metrics including Lean, Kanban, and Scrum. Begin by examining the importance of the tasks performed by a project analyst in ensuring project success. This leads into an overview of metrics as a measurement tool to evaluate performance. Learn the essentials for project metrics; various types of Agile metrics, and the Agile metrics that are commonly used to evaluate Agile projects. Learners observe how to decide the right metric, qualities that make a metric powerful; recognize details required to define a metric; and how to set benchmarks for effective metrics. Next, learn how to recognize the correct way to evaluate projects by using metrics, and discover best ways to present information gathered using metrics. The final tutorial covers reviewing and improving metrics, or the need to reassess effectiveness of a metric as a criterion for success.
