The Importance Of Focusing Daily On Success Metrics

Accordion to recent Dale Carnegie training research over 90% of teams in companies do not talk daily about their success metrics. This has a profound impact on how teams stay disengaged and how dysfunction stays normative. This is also a critical factor since according to the Harvard happiness research, people feel best at work when they focus continuously on their progress toward success metrics. In the Agile Canvas process, we do this in four ways:

  • We continuously update the success stories we're working on
  • We plan sprint actions every two weeks to make progress on our top stories
  • We do frequent intra-sprint checks
  • We confirm the doneness of sprint items at the end of each sprint

This positions teams to stay continuously energized and focused.
