» Agile Metrics
I meet with a lot of organizations who want to be Agile. When I ask why, most will respond with mechanical and tactical reasons:
- Improve On Time Delivery
- Align Business and Technology
- Flexibility to Respond to Change
Are these the right things to measure? If you achieve this, will you create a competitive advantage, or even parity? Do these represent business agility?
Avoid Measurements that Inhibit High-Performing Teams
Most leaders would say that they want to create high-performing teams. Unfortunately, many don't see that the way that they measure, track and report on their teams actually causes performance to suffer. Poorly chosen measurements can lead to negative and undesirable results.
