S02 E08 Professional Agile Leadership with Evidence Based Management with Magdalena Firlit
Peter Drucker famously said: “You can’t improve what you can’t measure”. Measurements and metrics are incredibly useful when it comes to product improvement, having the desire to get a better market position or just improvement of yourself as an individual. But then the next challenge; what to measure? And why?
Magdalena Firlit, Agile Transformation Consultant and Professional Scrum Trainer, talks to us about the PAL-EBM (Professional Agile Leadership Management with Evidence-Based Management) framework. Patricia Kong was a guest earlier this year to talk about EBM, but how does it relate to leadership?
What you’ll discover in this show:
- You can start creating metrics at any time
- It’s a dialogue between (top-level) management and teams, not a top-down approach
- Measuring less than all four Key Value Areas leaves out great potential data
