Software teams must use Business Metrics to understand Throughput, Lead Time, Forecasting, Flow, Quality, and Value - all measures that speak directly to business outcomes. By using Business Metrics, your software team will produce software that is more business-relevant with more certainty and less waste.

Equip your team to measure the value and quality of their work and learn how metrics can help your team answer questions like "How fast are we going?", "What should we do next?" and "Where's the bottleneck?"

The Team Guides for Software series takes a team-rst approach to software systems with the aim of empowering whole teams to build and operate software systems more eectively. The books are written and curated by experienced software practitioners and emphasize the need for collaboration and learning, with the team at the center.

Recensioner i media

i would consider this book essential reading for people new and/or experienced in the lean-agile world. the questions it answers, the perspectives it gives and stories told make it a book with great learnings and practical guidance for everyday application in your organization."

- nick brown, agile lead (ifs) at pwc uk

"i love that this is written specifically for team members, rather than tech leadership - there are questions that all teams need to ask themselves about the flow, quality and value of their work. the clear examples and explanations in here will spark curiosity in any team member and equip them to use their own data to help them focus on what matters most."

- victoria morgan-smith, director of delivery, internal products at financial times

"i love this book. it gets straight to the point providing easy to understand, and practical guidance on how to use data to answer all the commonly asked questions. questions such as "how do we know this works?" and "when will it be done?'. highly recommended to anyone who works with a team looking to improve their ability to build and operate software systems."

- amy phillips, engineering manager at gousto
