Pin the Tail on the Metric by Steve Martin
May 2016 Chapter Meeting
Sheraton Four Points, Norwood, MA
Full hot dinner buffett with cash bar
1.25 PDUs Technical Skills Category
Special note: The speaker has been been changed for our May Chapter Meeting. Steve Martin will be presenting an interactive presentation about Metrics and how to determine the right one for your needs - see abstract below.
Presentation Abstract: Pin the Table on the Metric
Metrics don’t have to be a necessary evil. If done right, metrics can help guide us to make better forward-looking decisions, as opposed to being used for simply managing or monitoring. They can help us identify trade-offs between options for what to do next versus be used as punitive, or worse, as managerial measures.
In this interactive session, we’ll take a different approach to metrics. I won’t be giving the top 10 list of field-tested metrics you should use. Instead, we’ll be workshopping through the critical thinking necessary for you to determine what is right for your teams, portfolios/programs, or organization.
First, we’ll explore why you want to measure something in the first place. We’ll next run through an exercise to help drive home concepts behind characteristics of “good” and “bad” metrics, so you can know what to look for. Lastly, we’ll pull together this information in an interactive exercise called Pin the Tail on the Metric to help you guide your conversations back at your organizations.
