No Good Measure

If you’re working in Agile, you’re generally working on implementation. You go to stand ups and you end up working on inputs that make up the whole of another part within the over arching strategy.

Day by day you start discussing how you are tracking and the ‘burn down rate’ starts becoming more important than the outcome.

When a measure becomes a target, it ceases to be a good measure.

Keep the outcome top of mind when you’re working in Agile teams. There’s no business value correlation from ‘how many tickets did you close off?’.
