STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING – and Sign up for this Webinar!

You are not going to want to miss this webinar on Tuesday, December 17 from 11am-12pm EST.

Do you believe in metrics?  I mean do you REALLY believe in them?  Or do you think they are stupid, useless, and cause more damage than good?

Does your company use metrics that are telling the wrong story?  Are they causing misinterpretations?  Or do you have the best metrics in the business and feel that others should be like you?

Well, its very likely that the number of people that are for and are against the value of metrics is split down the middle.  And I have always said that “BAD Metrics are worse than No Metrics at all”.

I’m on a mission —- I want to engage with various views on this topic, and, thanks to XBOSoft, we have setup a webinar for Tuesday, December 17 which will include Rex Black and Jay Philips in a panel discussion with me on various topics related to Metrics and Measurement.

Hope to hear from you soon!  Below is a description of the webinar that I wrote…….and some of the takeaways:

“The Good, The Bad, and the Metrics”

Webinar presented by XBOSoft

Panel: Mike Lyles, Jay Philips, Rex Black

Has your organization ever considered replacing a tester that did not write, for example, 15 test cases per day? Is the testing team blamed if defect leakage is greater than 5% into production?  What drives decisions like these?  The common thread in these examples is “Test Metrics”

Test Metrics… Everyone has an opinion about them. Some believe they are the most valuable way to communicate the results of testing. Some think that they are useless, misleading, and damaging to the communication of test results. Some believe that without measurement you are not managing the effort. And some believe that bad metrics are worse than no metrics at all.

Where does your organization fit in the metrics and measurement debates?  Is your team aligned?  Do you agree with the team?  Do you use a reporting process for test results?  Are you forced to report on metrics you don’t believe are valuable?  Do you have dozens of metrics that you are reporting periodically that no one looks at, and when they do look at them, there is room for misinterpretation?

In this webinar, Mike Lyles will challenge a panel of experts to discuss the topic of metrics and measurement, review multiple viewpoints on the topic, and address many of the questions that organizations have today around metrics and measurement.

Join us as we open for questions from the webinar audience in a highly interactive webinar that will benefit all skill levels from beginner to expert.

Key Takeaways:

  • Top metrics that are misused or misunderstood in most every organization
  • What metrics should you get rid of ASAP?
  • Best and Worst metrics – based on opinions of the panel & audience
  • Metrics that everyone should use – and how they compare to your organization’s metrics
  • Tools and processes that can help your organization better measure your testing
