To measure or Not to Measure? That is The Question.
Fixing quality is not an easy task. It involves changing the culture, changing the processes being used and sometimes even changing how engineering of software is done. But how do you know that any of the change agents you have used are actually successful?
In my experience, I went ahead and started measuring quality but did not get feedback in time. In retrospect, I realized that I confused product and productivity metrics. In this talk, I want to share the metrics I measured, how I measured them and what feedback I started getting on them. I will also share tips on how best to represent these metrics and how to get team buy-in on their usage. Can we even measure quality?
What metrics are useful for measuring Quality?
