Ryland Leyton - “When WIll You Be Done?" Talking to Leaders and Managers About Agile Construction

Answering “when will you be done?” to people outside the team – like the C-suite, directors, and managers – is often a challenge for teams focused on building software. Speaking to this group in a way comprehensible for an elevator or a hallway is a core competency for any agilist who wants to retain freedom and funding!

This session takes a brief walk through the concept of velocity, explains the “cone of uncertainty”, burnup and burn-down charts, and then shows you how to provide a ready and truthful answer about when you’ll be done.
