Stop Measuring Developer Productivity…Do This Instead

Measuring productivity starts with the foundation of trust and flow

We know the importance of foundations when we see it. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the most visible and famous of examples. The foundation of the tower was laid in 1173 and construction stopped in 1178 when the tower began to sink. It took two more stages and some engineering hacks to erect the rest of the tower and complete it by 1372.
