1. DevOps process effectiveness metrics
Includes metrics such as Deployment Frequency and Lead Time for Changes. Key measures of the team’s ability to deploy effectively despite the new pressures.

2. Backlog analysis
Backlog size and health metrics are always an important leading indicator of program health and are even more salient at a time of remote working and constantly changing priorities.

3. Development process efficiency
Flow Efficiency is a little measured but critical metric, especially at a time like this. It looks at the proportion of time that a team is actively working on a ticket (i.e. active vs inactive states of delivery). Ensuring that collaboration remains high and members are effectively working together during this period is a critical measure of your delivery health.

4. Throughput and Time to Value
The core Agile metrics of Velocity, Cycle Time and Lead Time have never been more important as is the measure of throughput.

5. Delivery Accuracy
If teams working in an Agile Scrum environment are unable to deliver their Sprint goals accurately, then the predictability of output over longer time periods and broader team sizes, is seriously compromised. Predictable delivery will be a highly valued capability in the ‘new normal’ world, hence the leading indicator of Completion Rate is so important. Completion Rate shows the percent of planned story points completed over a time period.

6. Quality
This is always a ‘north star’ Agile metric and can be measured in many different ways. Defect Density is an expression of defects created per unit of code, but First Time Pass Rate is also an important measure at the individual engineer level (but only when viewed in context within the team).

7. Talent
It is important to really understand how your team is feeling in the ‘new normal’ world. You should track a measure of morale and also a measure of how well people view their team to be functioning in the new remote working environment.
