Agile Philly

Committed to helping members build better software

Hi All.

What do you think about the idea of tracking percentage of committed stories delivered in each sprint?

The idea is to avoid focus on velocity or story points. I also wanted to account for the fact that stories can vary in size. Finally, I would like a measure that can be used to evaluate individual teams and the group as a whole.

I like this idea a lot but have not seen any mention of it or something similar in the literature or community. Thoughts, questions, suggestions, comments?

I like the idea also.  I'm just starting to include a similar metric on our weekly dashboard - for each team, number of stories not started, in progress, completed and closed (which means they originally added to sprint and then decided it didn't make sense for the sprint for some reason)



Promoting Agile Ideas since 1776

Meetings are monthly. Get meeting reminders by joining here.  We also have an Agile Philly Yahoo group.

  • Our events are Free, and Evening Meetings are usually on the Third Tuesday and  usually begin at 6:30 pm.  A sample agenda would be:
    • 6:30-7:00 pm: Eat & Greet & Network
    • 7:00-8:20 Main Topic/Speaker
    • 8:20-8:30 Q & A , Pack-Up, More Networking

    When we meet in Center City, our timeline may adjust (there's a $5 evening rate for Parking near the Municipal Services Building, at 15th & Vine):
    • 6-6:30pm: Eat & Greet with members of multiple usergroups
    • 6:30-8:20pm: AgilePhilly meeting (concurrent with other groups' meetings)
    • 8:20-9pm: Networking with everyone
  • And we often cross-post other User Group events in the Philadelphia, Bucks County and Jersey area. . . PB&J . . . so tell us of your event.


Our attempt with the group is to provide an environment where you can exchange ideas and meet with individuals involved in agile community.
