In this episode of Change on the Run, Søren Pedersen, Co-founder of BuildingBetterSoftware and Agile leadership coach, joins Phil Buckley, author of Change on the Run and change leadership consultant, to discuss how to measure progress during change.

Consistent updates on progress remind leaders and colleagues of the work being done, the success achieved, and the benefits realized once the change is made. It also identifies areas falling short of the plan that need extra resources.
