This short Lighting Talk introduces the Running Tested Feature (RTF) metric, a wonderfully useful metric that's easy to collect and promotes agility. It provides examples of RTF when development has steady progress and when SW breaks. This talk also discusses what happens when people try to game the RTF metric.
The Running Tested Features metric provides developers, managers and customers alike with a clear, unambiguous gauge of real software development progress. Usable on any kind of development project, RTF’s focus on outcome instead of process makes RTF especially fit for Agile projects. Because RTF can be used with both Agile and Waterfall projects, RTF makes an excellent progress metric for teams transitioning to Agile.
