Applying Flow Metrics for Scrum

Is your team answering the same three questions at the Daily Scrum but not seeing any work move? Are you overcommitting to every sprint and stuck with endless carry-over? Do your retrospectives feel like the same conversations with little impact?

Then your Scrum Team needs Flow Metrics! In this course, you will learn how to leverage four simple data points to help your Scrum Team break the cycle of endless status and move towards informed decisions, accurate planning, and actionable improvements.

Applying Flow Metrics for Scrum will teach you not only how to identify how much work to plan but also how to accurately forecast when individual work will be done in a Scrum Team’s context. Predict delivery, deliver on time.
