Metrics That Matter In Agile Projects
Source: Project Smart
Agile project management is on a large part about managing people. Studies show that overall team morale is directly related to the level of individual morale. The amount of personal investment that people put into the project is related to how they manage stress levels as the next iteration approaches, and how issues are communicated during development or rework. Stressful team environments cause attrition, which is a major staffing issue in outsourcing. The higher the morale, the more effective team members work; the more attrition is prevented and overall performance is reflected in the product's quality.
