LEADER’S PULSE: THE CHANGING DYNAMIC OF MEASUREMENT AND ITS COMPETING FORCES

Above angle of mature business partners hands during analysis of marketingBy Michael Hackett

I have been leading and managing software projects for a long time. Measuring the product and process has always caused great consternation. At its worst we measured everything that we could possibly measure.  We measured so many things that, in the end, I always doubted whether it led to higher quality software, or process improvement, when in actuality it  was to make managers feel “safer”.  Of course someone always had to keep track that the bugs got closed and the priority of deferred bugs, but in most cases the extent to which companies tracked and made reports on those bugs was far greater cost in time than the benefit we got from them.  I remember the days when Friday afternoon was compiling all kinds of numbers and measurements and metrics. All the test case and bug measures. Test cases executed, tests yet to execute. Automation runs. Passes and fails. New bugs open, bugs close rates. Find fix rates. Metrics reports turned into dashboards distributed to the team- ignored by most. Few metrics on the dashboard were even discussed. Did it really lead to higher quality?
