The Good, the Bad, and the Metrics, webinar focused on when to use and not to use software testing metrics.

On December 17, XBOSoft hosted another complimentary software quality webinar; this time on software testing metrics.

Are metrics worth the effort? Speaker Jay Philips agrees,”Bad metrics are worse than no metrics …” Where and how does your organization use metrics and measurement if at all? Are your current metrics clear or perhaps misinterpreted?

In this webinar, Mike Lyles, challenged Rex Black and Jay Philips to discuss multiple viewpoints and cover many of the questions organizations have today regarding measuring testing effectiveness.

Key Takeaways included:

  • Top metrics that are misused or misunderstood in most organizations
  • Metrics that every organization should use

“The webinar examined various angles on the good and bad uses of metrics, and engaged the audience and a panel to discuss the hot topics around metrics and measurement.” said Mike Lyles, who moderated the discussion.
