Software development costs an estimated 63% of a project’s budget, making developers and their work performances a center point of executive discussions. Initially, organizations resorted to a more mechanical approach of locating the work done by their devs- through average lines of code written or bugs fixed per day. However, the metrics don’t convey the full picture of the software development lifecycle.
Teams with high productivity and process efficiency have taken a more provocative approach by focusing on the ‘how’ of development; developer behavior, collaboration patterns, code reviews, and team dynamics. Identifying and eliminating bottlenecks helps the team work on their core competencies and be more productive.
