Agile Velocity – Don’t Take It Serious

Velocity – Its a metric, but not a metric to take serious.  This is my opinion!

  • Is it beneficial to skip story points or think of each story as 1 point?
  • Would it be okay to capture velocity, but tie zero goals or KPI’s to it?
  • Do we need to hide velocity from managers and PM’s?
  • Would it be okay to focus on building cool solutions and not worry about all these metrics?
  • Do we do what works in regards to sprints and capacity for the team?
  • How about we NOT measure team productivity by velocity, but rather deliverable’s!!
