We're going to start things off by looking at project metrics and key performance indicators, or KPIs. You'll learn about some of the more commonly used metrics and KPIs as they relate to DevOps projects.
We will then review metrics and KPIs that produce faster outcomes, improve efficiency, ensure quality and security, and ensure a positive workforce culture.

Later on, we'll dive into in-team and cross-team collaboration. You'll learn how to achieve effective collaboration through cultural changes, cross-functional team collaboration, and tooling.
After learning about collaboration, you'll learn about tools and processes that are necessary for Agile practices. We'll look at physical tools, project management tools, and screen recording tools.
We'll wrap things up by covering the steps and requirements for creating organizational structures for Agile practices. More specifically, we'll compare horizontal teams with vertical teams.
