Measurements in Agile world

Let’s talk about measurements. Organizations who still work in classic environments (that is, waterfall) measure the progress based on resources’ inputs, which means how much effort they invested in a specific task. In that case no matter how much the team invests in a task it does not indicate how much value was really created for the customer. As opposed to the waterfall approach in #Agile environment we focus in value creation. Hence, we need to measure the outputs (deliverables) and not the inputs (effort estimation). In most cases it will be based on accepted Features/user stories and/or story points. I use the term accepted because it means the deliverable was demoed and accepted by the customer (e.g. working system). In that case we can understand how much value was created to the customer.
