Tim Bourguignon measures all the things

How do you measure success? You measure all the things! Wait, don’t switch off yet, because Tim has a very good idea on how you can do this.

  1. Always take notes. In meetings, after conversations, all the time.
  2. Measure everything you can. Tasks completed, cycle time, features, interactions, etc.
  3. Get numbers on everything you do as a Scrum Master. How many times did you talk to each team member this week? How many times did you feel lost, or did not know how to go forward?
  4. Look at trends. Only numbers can help you see trends. So measure and stand back to see the big picture.
