The Four Key Value Areas of Evidence-Based Management

Evidence-Based Management is about measuring what matters, but more specifically, it is about understanding why something matters. Velocity, delivered requirements, the number of fixed defects, hours spent, and completion milestones are metrics many organizations focus on, but do they matter to your customer? Just because we can measure it doesn’t mean we should measure it.

Have you heard of the Hawthorne effect? Let’s think about measures that reflect the changes that matter to our customers. Once we determine the right metrics for products and stakeholders, we need to ask ourselves if the outcome produced the desired impact? This breakout session focuses on the four Key Value Areas of Evidence-Based Management. It will demonstrate how metrics in each of these areas will help you rapidly and consistently deliver value to your clients over time.
