Priyanka Keswani: Individual performance appraisals as an obstacle to teamwork in Scrum teams

We start this episode with a quote by Goldratt: “Tell me how you will measure me, and then I will tell you how I will behave. If you measure me in an illogical way, don’t complain about illogical behavior.” We dive into how metrics can totally affect the team’s performance, and why individual performance appraisal destroys teamwork.
