Agile 2014 Interview with Troy Magennis

Focused Objective's Troy Magennis is at Agile 2014 to deliver a presentation called Moneyball for Software Projects: Agile Metrics for the Metrically Challenged. Agile Metrics are a very hot topic at Agile 2014 and Troy's approach is footed in something many of us who are statistically challenged (myself included) may find more accessible. Troy has taken many of the techniques used by Billy Beane and the Oakland A's that were featured in Michael Lewis' book Moneyball... (and yeah, there is a movie). In this interview Troy and I discuss his approach and how he's been working with it.  

One of the more impressive things Troy has done is come up with a way to use metrics to determine when Scrum will deliver best for you and when you should make the switch to Kanban.

Agile 2014 Interview with John Rudd from Solutions IQ

John Rudd is in Orlando this week to give two presentations at Agile 2014. The first, with his brother Charlie, focused on the Agile transformation that SolutionsIQ went through after they made the decision to move to Agile.

The second presentation was on Active Portfolio Management. Portfolio Management is a VERY hot topic at Agile 2014 and there are a variety of opinions about how to address understanding value, and what tools should be used to figure out what to prioritize.

John Rudd brings a truly unique perspective to this conversation. Not only is he the Managing Director of SolutionsIQ, but he has years of experience working in investment banking and financial consulting. John shares his thoughts on which tools from the financial world are best applied when trying to determine what to prioritize in the Agile Portfolio.
