When we look at team performance in a business, we need to take into account 3 different metrics. Sally explains those 3 key metrics at the start of this episode, and we dive into why some metrics are good leading indicators of team performance.
As we dive into performance metrics, we discuss what are some of the enablers for team performance, as well as how leaders, and leadership teams can positively impact the agility and performance of their teams.
Measuring Maturity, Performance and Outcomes, the critical aspects of performance
“A high-performing team is not measured by the amount of work delivered, but by the impact and outcomes they produce.”
This is the phrase we discuss and investigate to help us define maturity in agile teams. What are the ingredients that allow teams to focus on outcomes? How do we help teams understand why those outcomes matter, and how to define them?
When we seek business agility, we need to help teams align their work with the outcomes, not only deliver what is in their backlog. For a more in depth explanation, check out this video by Sally and her team explaining Business Agility. You can also see Sally’s team’s other Agile explainer videos at Agilevideos.com.
