4629RE: [scrumdevelopment] SCRUM performance measurements

      Patrick, 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.

      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.
