If you don’t collect any metrics, you’re flying blind
21 April 2020
Shout out to Exceptional PPM and PMO Solutions™ CEO Scott M. Graffius for being quoted in BMC Software's article, Software Quality Metrics Explained. An excerpt from Graffius' first book, Agile Scrum: Your Quick Start Guide with Step-by-Step Instructions, heads up the BMC article. The content is “If you don’t collect any metrics, you’re flying blind. If you collect and focus on too many, they may be obstructing your field of view.” Thank you to Stephen Watts and BMC for including it!
