4629RE: [scrumdevelopment] SCRUM performance measurements
- Sep 26, 2004Patrick, one metric I've been able to gather has to do with the amount of
time each day that each member of the team is recording spent against tasks
in the Sprint. One of the things that is supposed to happen in the Sprint
(because of the increased accountability and the support of the ScrumMaster
to remove identified obstacles) is that each developer should be able to
focus more and more time on the Sprint and not be sidetracked during the
course of the Sprint. My experience so far shows a measurable increase in
actual developer time when compared to non-Scrum iterations.
I'm interested in hearing experiences from others on this too -- I'm working
on other metrics that I can use to convince senior management of the
usefulness of Scrum.

Of course, this would require that an organization was already
capable of accurately gathering accurate meaningful metrics
and yet was feeling enough pain to consider trying SCRUM.
I would suspect that this is rarely the case, so there will rarely
be a baseline to even establish measurable improvement against.

Subject: [scrumdevelopment] SCRUM performance measurements
While introducing SCRUM to software organisations, the question pops up of
what *bottom-line* improvements can be expected - decreasing number of bugs,
lower cost of quality, faster time to deliver, ...
My question is whether there are people out there, that have actually
measured such improvements, and whether such measurements have been
collected ? Are there experiences in using such measurements to actually
track progress of introducing SCRUM into an organisation ?
All input welcome.
