Useful Scrum Metrics for Upper Management

I participated in a Scrum Gathering in October 2004 to define metrics or “planning, managing and assessing Scrum projects and implementations”. Most of our work was based around Dan Rawsthorne’s paper and ideas concerning the concept of earned business value represented in a functional work breakdown structure (WBS). We were fortunate to have Bill McMichael from Primavera to provide us with a PMP/PMI perspective on the usefulness of the metrics.

This collaboration was formalized by Dan, Ken Schwaber, and Brent Barton:

The ScrumWorks team is salivating over the possibility of creating all this great reporting functionality. Wonderful work guys!
