About the session

Measurement is one of the hottest topics in our industry, however many organisations are stuck in the measurement trap, either measuring anything/everything, poorly visualising data, not being skeptical of data and even suggesting misleading patterns from the data presented. 

In recent years, measurement has increasingly gained more traction in our industry with many folks wanting to "measure" or even "measure what matters" when adopting new ways of working. Whilst this enthusiasm is great, it often is channelled in the wrong way.

This session will demonstrate just how prevalent lying with (agile) charts is, particularly with what will be some of your favourite metrics, as well as providing practical tips to improve the visualisation/usage of data within your teams and organisation.

Participant takeaways:

  • Understanding the different ways charts can lie
  • The common charts you may use with your teams and how they may be lying to you
  • Different ways to overcome this

Themes: Data, Metrics, Measurement, Culture, Flow, Leadership, Visualisation, Predictability
