What Is Empirical Process Control?

#minutewithmarcus thanks Diana for a great question today:

“Marcus I’ve just been asked to help coordinate an agile team and they’ve explained they operate on empirical process control, can you help me?”

So Diana, Empirical Process Control is a model often used in scrum that helps make decisions based on observation and experimentation rather than on detailed upfront planning.

It relies on the three main ideas of

  1. Transparency

  2. Inspection

  3. Adaptation

To keep it simple, think of transparency as your board on the wall, inspection as those demonstration and reflection meetings and adaptation as a team continually getting better and closer to their goal in small steps.
