I provide some thoughts on Time to Value as an outcome based metric in response to a post by Chris Matts. I put them here partly because they’re quite lengthy and partly because he deleted (accidentally) the first comment I placed on his post.
This morning (November 22, 2013) I had the opportunity to be involved in a very unique discussion. SkillsMatter hosted the Agile Testing & BDD Exchange in London. This particular discussion involved people from three different countries, and only one of them was actually in London when the conversation occurred.
I am proud to be a part of a new program in the Agile Alliance – Analysis and Product Management in Agile that was formed with the purpose of providing a way for practitioners in the business analysis and product management communities to share stories, questions, and puzzles about using those skills in an agile setting and to share ideas between communities. The first activity of the program will be an Agile Open Jam at the Building Business Capability (BBC) conference
