Don’t measure Agile gains using traditional metrics

  • liquidity ratios measure a company’s ability to repay both short- and long-term obligations,
  • leverage ratios measure the amount of capital that comes from debt,
  • efficiency ratios (also known as financial activity ratios) measure how well a company is utilizing its assets and resources,
  • profitability ratios measure a company’s ability to generate income relative to revenue, balance sheet assets, operating costs, and equity, and finally
  • market value ratios evaluate the share price of a company’s stock.
  • Improving flow
  • Improving quality
  • Improved performance (delivery, lead times, productivity) and, as a consequence
  • Improved profitability
