Kanban Weekly Roundup - Feb 8, 2012

Posted on February 07, 2012 by admin

By Dominica DeGrandis

A short list this week, but a powerful concept - we look at the benefit of team metrics vs. Individual metrics. 

There will be an interlude with the Kanban Weekly Roundup next week - I will be in Budapest co-training a class with David Anderson.  David will be covering Kanban for Software Engineering and I will be speaking on Kanban for IT Operations.

News

This post on the benefit of team metrics affirms my strong belief for looking at results from the whole organization versus individuals. Vin D’Amico (@BrainsLink) states is well,” teams deliver successful enterprise outcomes, not individuals”.  If you read my Devops article, you know that I’m a strong proponent of finding common goals across development and operations teams.  While establishing team-based metrics is a vast improvement over individual metrics (and individual merit reviews), bumping metrics up to the organizational level can lead to optimizing organization wide results.
