我們寧願事實，以故事 (管理使用標準化措施敏捷活動) 是通過IFPUG產生的白紙, COSMIC和NESMA, 維持行業中用於估計的ISO / IEC軟件大小標準的國際組織, 預算, 承包和項目管理, 供應商績效評估, 標杆管理等管理活動. This white paper shows how the ISO/IEC software sizing standards methods can be used to manage Agile-at-Scale activities, achieving this whilst leaving existing Agile processes unchanged at the team level.
The essential processes that management relies on for budgeting, estimating and controlling Agile-at-Scale activities need a more reliable and objective measure of work-output (即. of software size) than Story Points. Any one of the ISO standard methods for estimating or measuring software size can meet this need. Senior management is responsible for setting budgets and allocating resources optimally so as to deliver the greatest value to the organization, and for tracking progress against budgets across the organization.
This cannot be done properly for a software group using only typical Agile processes where there are no common performance data across all the teams. These management tasks become even more difficult for an organization that has contracted out its software development to external suppliers that use Agile processes, but that do not use any standard performance measures.
In this paper we explain the challenges that management faces when confronted with the limitations of Agile metrics and we show how simple but effective and long-established ISO standard software measures can fit seamlessly into Agile processes to enable managers to estimate and control Agile delivery at scale.

This white paper complements the previous document “Managing Agile at Scale A briefing for Software Executives and CIOs” that offers simple but effective and long-established international standard solutions to to manage Agile delivery at scale, without risk of losing the speed and flexibility benefits of Agile processes.
