Forecasting with Troy Magennis

This week's episode features special guest Troy Magennis and host Paul Elia on the topic of Forecasting.

"Forecasting is about answering the right questions, to a transparent degree of certainty, with as little effort as possible." - Troy Magennis, CEO, Focused Objective

This said, Troy has spent considerable effort making the job of forecasting easier for the rest of us! On his company's website there are a number of free tools and spreadsheets to model scenarios ranging from classical project management to Scrum and Kanban.

In our discussion we explore the top three mistakes that people make when forecasting and what can be done to mitigate problems.

Exposing Time Theft: Making Work Visible with Dominica DegrandisIf someone stole your wallet, you'd notice it. So why don't people notice when they are robbed of something much more valuable than their wallet - time? Join Dominica DeGrandis as she chats with host Colleen Johnson on how to make visible - and reduce - the churn and burn that is creating a workforce constantly on the edge of burnout.

The technology world - and indeed the whole business world - is moving at a pace faster than ever before, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Instead of consigning ourselves to the pressure cooker of the modern world, it's time to elevate how we work. It's time to level up our game. It's time to make work visible.

5 Metrics to Create Safety and High Performing Teams

In this talk from Agile DC 2017, a yearly conference in Washington DC, James Gifford promotes five metrics: lead time, quality, happiness, agile maturity, and business value.

Focusing on these five metric areas as a diagnostic tool helps teams grow.

Coaching teams to harness data in a positive way also creates a culture of Continuous Improvement.
