Published on

Velocity is a crucial topic as per PMI-ACP exam framework. It is important to understand what is velocity, how is it measured, and why do we need it in the first place. The webinar covers all the major issues concerned with velocity. It talks about how velocity affects the project performance and why velocity is not to be the parameter to judge the performance of individuals or the team.

  20. 20. 21•Velocity is an Empirical Observation•Do not compare velocity of two teams•Only done stories are counted•Velocity is measured in term of size, story points orideal days•We should correct the forecasted velocity with actualvelocity.
