Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Where is the data held?

The data is held in Microsoft’s cloud in Australia.

Are my user details secure?

Agile IQ® doesn’t store any personal data or passwords. Agile IQ® uses Google and Microsoft to login. Agile IQ® only knows that your identity has been verified by these sources before it logs you in.

What personal data to you capture?

Agile IQ® doesn’t store any personal data about you, your login name or your passwords.

Agile IQ only stores information that you provide in order to do assessments, i.e.:

  • Your agile certifications – this helps us understand how practiced you are at identifying agile behaviours in teams and across the enterprise. This helps avoid overestimating (positive outcome bias).
  • Your company name and the program or division of your team(s) – this helps create a ‘container’ for team-to-team comparisons.
  • The agile frameworks you use – for example, SAFe®, Nexus™, Scrum™, Extreme Programming(XP)™, etc.
  • Your team names.

How does Agile IQ® calculate my scores?

The information on behaviour you input into Agile IQ® is processed through our proprietary algorithms. This then outputs the strength of Agile Behaviours, including self-organisation, agile values, continuous improvement culture, and sprinting.

Each question has a specific weighting against each of the 4 primary behaviours in Agile IQ® and the 23 influencing behaviours. 

Can I go back and look at my answers to questions?

The questions represent only input into the Agile IQ®’s behavioural algorithms. The questions chosen for the quick assessment are also random.

To avoid anchoring (a form of cognitive bias) in completing an assessment, it is recommended that assessors:

  • Reflect only on the strengths of behaviours seen since the last assessment.
  • Consider empirical evidence regarding those behaviours.
  • Complete the assessment based on this evidence alone.

With these inputs, Agile IQ’s statistical algorithms will then provide insights to trends and where improvements can be made.

Can I use the assessment in Retrospectives?

Many Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches use the full-baseline assessment as a team survey on their agile practices. A full baseline assessment done using this practice typically takes around 20 minutes to complete.

To share the screen, connect your device to a screen share compatible input device like Apple TV, Google Chromecast, or a TV with screen cast compatible input.

What is the 'Quick Assessment' based on?

Different questions have a different statistical weighting on different agile behaviours. When you do a quick assessment, only the questions that contribute the highest amount of statistical significance are candidates for selection.

How can I compare teams?

People with a program subscription can compare teams in the Executive Dashboard.
