Hey Mister! Help me measure my team’s agility.

A journey towards the ultimate agility metric

 

In order to see empirical indicators of my team’s agility, as a Scrum Master, I want to measure various aspects of a team's and product lifecycle.

Sooner or later each Scrum Master must realize that without measuring various aspects of a team’s and product lifecycle, there is no way for creating a space for discussion about improvements, at least those based on empirical data. So how to do that? What should we measure. How should we interpret the results? Which metrics are good and which are bad? Can we talk about good and bad metrics at all? If we work in an environment with multiple teams, can we compare their agility or even use metrics as one of the factors used during the process of teams performance appraisals?


The multitude of questions, doubts and potential metrics to measure can bring us a serious headache. In this short talk I will try to clarify the subjec. I will focus on 3 dimensions of measuring a team’s agility: the process,the quality, and finally the value. In the final step I will combine all these dimensions into “one metric to rule them all” - the metric which ultimate goal is to show at glimpse the team’s progress (or its lack) towards better agility.
