Agile metrics: Evidence Based Management (EBM) and Objective Key Results (OKR) create Flow. EBM + OKR = Flow.
Why do we measure progress and velocity? Don’t you trust us? Do you want to check us or compare us with other teams? Unfortunately these are questions I hear often as an Agile trainer and coach. “We measure to improve” is always my answer. You do it for yourself to see where things are going better and where things can be done better. You can substantiate statements such as “I think it is fine” and “it feels better” with data and facts.
Why then the resistance to measuring?
