Agile Metrics provides software development leaders quantitative insights into the cost and value delivered by agile projects, programs and/or portfolios. In addition they also provide quantifiable insights critical to planning agile projects, programs and portfolios. Further insights are gained in the process of estimation, evaluating projects and deciding on which projects to do within a portfolio or product line.
Agile techniques have historically leveraged relative measures to size work, compute velocity and other team level metrics. The most common examples of metrics in agile are Story Points and Ideal Days. Relative scrum metrics support team level measures but have little value at the organizational level.
Leveraging non-relative size measures, such as Function Points, Function Point Lite and Quick and Early Function Points provides leadership a quantitative means to gain enterprise wide data-driven insights. This data provides transparency into the economic and engineering performance, such as agile quality metrics, of agile projects, programs and portfolios.
