Recently the Software Engineering Institute has published an interesting article on the use of Agile metrics in DoD contracts. They have defined a few metrics of interest:
- Velocity – volume of work accomplished in a specified period of time
- Sprint Burn-Down – progress for the development team during a sprint
- Release Burn-Up – release readiness metrics
The report recognizes a number of advanced metrics and discusses their use and relation to the DoD standards, which makes a nice reading.
