Agile Analytics - Metric Definitions

Agile Board Analytics - Metrics

The Agile Board Analytics module (AgileSpace) analyzes all work items/tickets in an Agile board and produces metrics to help Agile teams better understand the planning, development, and delivery processes.
These Agile metrics shouldn't be used as a target for agile teams, it's just a tool that enables them to identify the signals of their planning, development, and delivery processes. Oobeya leverages these metrics to detect symptoms of the processes.
