Yeah, yeah
When I iterate
Managers be sayin, “Damn, that’s great!”
Velocity increase
With how often I release, yeah
This is how I roll
I got production in control
When you got a good WIP limit
No reason not to stay in it

Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – I burn down

Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – Girl look at that whiteboard
Ahhhh – I burn down

When I walk to the board (yeah)
This is what I see (ok)
Work items ranked
By priority
I got my workflow on the board
And I ain’t afraid to show it, show it, show it

I’m agile and I know it

  1. Velocity Increase – with how often I release ???
    Another reason for not using this metric – the preception that it should increase.
    how about
    Technical debt decrease – refactoring with each release .

    • It’s just a funny song, Tom.

      Having said that, I think it’s totally appropriate for a team’s lead time to decrease over time while not decreasing quality. If this isn’t ever happening, then they aren’t improving.

      I guess it’s possible this figure could remain level if a team has nothing to improve on, but I don’t think I’ve ever worked on that team.
