Episode 10 - Velvet or Volatile Velocity

 

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines velocity as "quickness of motion". In agile, velocity is the sum of the size of all completed stories within a sprint. Essentially, this is the "motion" of the team. Velocity is a measurement, a tool used to track history and ultimately, predict the future. 

 

Are your team's stories being estimated in Zoo animals? That's okay! Listen to learn how to convert your Elephants/Lions/Mice into velocity. Kim and Cory focus on understanding the importance of velocity, how to track velocity and how to use it to your advantage.
