Followup on Scrum and Metrics
I had sent out a post earlier about Scrum and Metrics and did get quite a few very good suggestions. So I took them back to the Product Management group. However, they insist they would like to evaluate the Estimated Vs Actuals- which I don't think should be applicable in a scrum mode - but I am a newbee to the scrum world - so I am not sure.
Is there any documentation that could direct me on IF it is a metrics worth calculating ?
From a background perspective :
The Development team provides a high level estimate to the Product Management based on which they would scope each scrum. Now they want to track these vs the Actuals - which I don't have an issue with - just wanted to make sure it is the right thing to measure and not just another check box.
