Organised by the Agile South Coast, Southampton Chapter, in association with the BCS Hampshire Branch.


Measurements and KPIs are crucial for our ability to improve. Used in the right way, they provide a vital ability for us to ‘see’ where we are, they enable feedback and allow us to make adjustments to ourselves, teams and businesses. The right measures can even be inspiring and unifying.

However, picking the wrong measures or applying them without consideration can limit performance and promote behaviours you don’t want (or more commonly, didn’t expect).

This interactive session will give you a chance to look at measurements, their value and the risk they pose to motivation and collaboration – especially in modern, highly technical and creative teams.

About Stephen Morris

For over a decade, Stephen Morris has held senior leadership and consulting positions for cloud-computing providers and other companies with very high scale and complex IT. He was named “Most Influential Business Leader” in the 2016 UK Agile Awards, with one of his teams receiving “Most Improved Agile Team” the same year.

The Agile South Coast Group meets monthly, every second Tuesday of the month, to discuss topics about the whole Agile Experience within local technical organisations and people in the Southampton / Hampshire area.

They use differing Agile techniques to explore the space, and their aim is to spread the best practices and avoid the pitfalls of applying Agile methodologies within our professional lives.
