Using Measurement to Improve Scrum Team Performance
Managers in organizations like to look at how their teams are performing. Traditional organizations often look at things like performance against plans to evaluate teams, but they need to ask themselves whether they are certain that the plans they develop will produce the results they desire. Most plans are merely guesses that assume that if a group of people do a series of things, the good results will follow. The problem is that plans can, and often are, wrong. So how can a team know whether they are performing effectively? This whitepaper by Kurt Bittner and Patricia Kong explores how to use measurement to improve the performance of a Scrum Team.
