“You only get what you measure, so be careful what you measure.”

How One Jira Ticket Made My Employer $1MM/Month: 7 Metrics that Actually Matter — JavaScript Scene — Medium

And more highly valuable tips when writing any type of software.

Somewhere in the middle are his golden additions to the Agile values:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working software over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan

If that doesn’t look familiar, you really need to read this.

I’ll add some more of my favorite dev team values:

Continuous delivery over deadlines
Support over blame
Collaboration over competition

Highly recommended reading.
