How (agile) charts lie
Measurement is one of the hottest topics in our industry, however, many organizations are stuck in the measurement trap, either measuring anything/everything, poorly visualizing data, not being skeptical of data, and even suggesting misleading patterns from the data presented.

Whilst this enthusiasm is great, it often is channeled in the wrong way.
