‘Velocity has value for understanding output, but the Accelerate metrics map to outcomes with evidence to support organizational performance. Having multiple teams focus on consistent measurement like these metrics is a way to ensure that managers can compare notes between teams and more easily identify when teams need intervention.
Consistent measurement isn’t a case for holding every team within a company to the same standard for “good.” For example, deployment frequency might vary by team based on different contexts like the size of a team or the nature of their product. But the use of consistent metrics can be a way to benchmark an individual’s team against their own previous performance, and tracking the history can allow teams and managers to more easily understand where optimization is needed.’
