Published on September 20, 2023 | Read time: ~ 3 minutes 

In the fast-paced world of software development, engineering leaders are constantly striving to tell their teams' success stories. The pressure is on to boost productivity and retain top talent while delivering top-notch results.

We've already explored the Developer Thriving framework and the importance of visibility in our previous whitepapers. But here's the missing piece of the puzzle: measuring developer success and performance.

Recommendations from Our Research

Our research leads to several recommendations:

  • Consistency in Metric Usage: Managers should ensure that measurement practices are consistent across teams.

  • Open Dialogue: Developers should voice which metrics they find most valuable and discuss measurement accuracy as a team.

  • Inclusion and Diversity: Consider the impact of measurement on minoritized developers and reflect that in measurement practices.

Effective measurement can be a game-changer for engineering teams. When done right, metrics boost productivity, enhance developer experience, and create a more transparent, evidence-based engineering culture. So, embrace the power of healthy metrics, and watch your software teams thrive!
