KPIs for Engineering¶
We are firm believers of measuring successes and failures. And most times, what gets measured and communicated will improve over time.
At DoubleGDP, we measure a few data points over time to make sure we can consistently improve and spot trouble some trends before becoming unruly. Some data points are measured constantly, and a overall data summary is compiled at the end of every week.
At the beginning of the sprint, two or more engineers assign each story a certain number of points (days of work). Bugs automatically have 1 point (1 day's worth of work). The total number of points in a sprint should be around 10 * total engineers. 10 * total number of engineers is the minimum point number engineers are expected to complete cumulatively.
