About the Book
Is it a 5 or a 13? Or an XL?’ If you're the kind of person tired of these conversations, we've got something for you. This book is a practical guide to leave behind wasteful guesstimation and use revolutionary science from the 1600s instead! Well, not that revolutionary we guess. But for some strange reason, using probability mathematics within Scrum is still new. So we made a book to help you save the time you now spend planning, giving you more time for doing. All in a language your customer understands: time. We present to you: Flow Metrics for Scrum Teams.
