We all know the saying "measurement drives behaviour". Therefore Agilists are understandably wary when management demands metrics to prove that their investment in Agile practices is paying off.
I've done some work to identify a small set of Agile metrics that I believe to be helpful. I have drawn particular inspiration from an open space workshop facilitated by Pete Behrens (CSC, CST) at the Orlando Scrum gathering and have also been helped by my colleague Mike Freislich.
This PDF contains my conclusions thus far. I must confess that not all of these metrics are yet in place at any of my coaching clients, so I do regard this as a work-in-progress and expect the power of empiricism to show me my mistakes over time. I would also value the input of my reader ;-).
