Re: [agile-usability] Re: Benchmarking Agile Projects
- Hi Leina
So far I am in data analysis. I will give you a little background on what
I am doing.
The approach I am taking is "Grounded Theory" for developing to the
study. To measure marked improvement is difficult by employing
quantitative data alone. Therefore I am approaching the initial study
from a qualitative research methods standpoint to distill the
questions/metrics that may lead to stronger quantitative data gathering.
So far I have gathered a good portion of raw data and I will be starting
analysis very shortly. Until I have analyzed the data full I can not
answer your question about obstacles.
Wish I could be more help at this time. Check back with me in a month or
so and I will have a much better handle in this area.
