Lies, Damned Lies and Metrics

They say that “you get what you measure”, and we have all seen it happen. “We need to get the coverage up!” followed by software developers frantically writing tests that might not actually test anything. Coverage is up. Quality? Not so much. So what metrics can we use to drive the things we believe in? This presentation covers recommended and un-recommended metrics and how each one could drive your team towards a bleaker, or brighter future.

What will you learn from this talk?
* Leading vs lagging indicators and their value
* What metrics can hurt your agility
* What metrics push towards agility
