re: How do you measure code quality / engineering team performance? VIEW POST


Top of my mind here is "why?", what's the purpose of measuring stuff: profitability for the company; team happiness; customer engagement?

The highly recommended Accelerate book by Nicole Forsgren et al ( suggests the following metrics are useful for end-end delivery performance, which is correlated with better return on investment for the company, happier people and happier customers:

  • Lead time for changes
  • Deployment frequency
  • Time to restore service
  • Change failure rate

Have a read - or the shorter State of DevOps Reports derived from the same research: - the TL;DR version :)


And the main goal is definitely team happiness
