Thursday brings us Troy Magennis. Troy is something of a metrics and forecasting guru and also a Flight Level Guide. He has published some very cool (and free!) tools on his Focused Objective web site.

Q. How would you describe yourself in a single tweet?

A. I’m interested in helping organizations to see and understand their data. I’ve been on the receiving end of poor data related punishment, and know we can do better.

Q. In your opinion, what is the most exciting thing happening in your industry right now?

A. You can say the words “Metrics” and “Forecasting” in polite conversation (except on twitter #NoEstimates)

Q. Why should people come to Lean Agile London 2020?

A. Lean Agile London is a practical conference – it’s one of the few multi-denominational Agile framework conferences where it’s safe to say that there are good practices in all approaches (Except SAFe 🙂 joking, ok, just joking)

Q. What is your favourite thing about London?

A. To be honest. Fish and Chips. And the celebration that breakfast can be your fatty cheat meal of the day.

Q. Why should people come to your talk at Lean Agile London 2020?

A. I think a lot of frameworks “talk” about dependencies without offering actionable guidance. I want to challenge the belief dependencies are just about team organizational design and cross-skilling and offer some new ideas on how we can measure their impact and take pre-emptive co-ordination actions.

Q. What are you most looking forward to at Lean Agile London 2020?

A. The hallway track. So many hands-on practitioners, leaders, and people I admire from our industry in one place.


Troy will be speaking at Lean Agile London at 14:20 on Tuesday 28th April 2020 in the Banqueting Room of Glaziers Hall.
