17 metrics to accelerate delivery without damaging culture

It’s a common sentiment that engineering organizations focused on developer velocity and accelerated delivery, are in direct conflict with good culture and developer well-being. At the same time, many engineering managers are continuously trying to quantify their velocity and agility through age-old, toxic techniques such as stack ranking (an employee ranking method that categorizes employees into levels of performance), as their “data-driven method”. But what if I were to tell you that this is a data-driven trap? Stack ranking is a culture killer,often only serving to alienate your best devs. It’s also highly limited as it’s essentially measuring the wrong thing. Unfortunately, many great dev leads, fall into this trap. I’d like to propose an alternative.
