Metrics just for the sake of information often just end up in spreadsheets no one cares about.
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2014
On April 7, Phil Lew had a successful full day workshop at Quest in Baltimore on Software Quality Metrics Best Practices. In this workshop he explained that when implementing metrics you first need to understand the purpose of the metric and who will be using it. “Metrics just for the sake of information, while helpful, often just end up in spreadsheets that no one cares about. Not only do you need to learn how to define and develop metrics that connect with potential actions driving toward improvement, you also understand and avoid one of the main pitfalls of metrics, driving behavior which could be both unintended and negative”, says Phil.
