Seven Measurement and Metrics Anti-patterns in Agile and DevOps

Agile transformations are underway in just about every organization. Continued competitiveness demands that we deliver value to our users, customers, and clients with quality, speed, and cost-effectiveness. A key principle in our agile culture is fast feedback.

Fast feedback requires that managers have the appropriate measurement and metrics systems in place to ensure that all key stakeholders have timely information to make decisions, take corrective action and continuously improve. Unfortunately, as we transition from our traditional lifecycle and culture to agile and DevOps, many organizations have not rearchitected their measurement and metrics approach(es). As a result, several measurements and metrics anti-patterns are being practiced such as relying on the same traditional measures and metrics to serve us in our new agile & DevOps world, not aligning measures and metrics to key business goals and retaining a functional vs. business outcome perspective when implementing our measurement system.
