- tend to be born from well-intentioned requests to help stakeholders understand project status, cost, and success

In this session, we will look at different types of data that can be derived from your Scrum Team. We will discuss how you can transform the data from numbers into leading indicators about the project work and our teams’ performance. During our exploration, we’ll also address potentially nefarious uses of the numbers alone and the negative influence it may have on your team. Finally, we’ll offer some tips and tricks to help keep your team engaged, motivated and focused on their work.
