Metrics mean accountability. They hold the team accountable for the work they’re putting in. This doesn’t mean the metrics are just for managers to hold over everyone’s heads. Their main purpose is to improve the results of the team by pointing out areas of excellence as well as shortcomings. Without metrics software teams might start missing deadlines and produce low-quality work. How long do you think such a situation is sustainable?
But what about being “agile?” Don’t metrics fly in the face of an agile team because they represent corporate structure and bureaucracy? While you don’t want to overanalyze the team, you must have metrics because it shows your clients that you care about the details.
