#138 Jeff Haynie, The State of Engineering Performance Management
Jeff Haynie of Pinpoint talks about their survey and report on how engineering teams measure their performance.
Who he is, what he does, a little about Appcelerator Titanium. What is Pinpoint, finding out what is going in engineering. Report on state of engineering performance management, companies surveyed, metrics used. Software is a new profession, much will change in the medium term. Metrics used by companies who did measure; why cost wasn’t a metric; is there a “best” metric. How Pinpoint measures their own performance. How is the data gathered. Black boxes in the company and getting visibility into teams, how does agile fit in. How the rest of the business views engineering; CTO/CIO are more most negative about engineering. Challenges teams face; no metrics no problems. Future work. Finding the report.
