DORA Metrics: Software Delivery Performance & Adoption Challenges

Hello all! Here with another article. One of my favourite implementations that I’ve done in my agile software delivery consulting days and where I saw a large driver of culture change. That’s DORA Metrics. I’ve also recently spoken about WIP limits and their general importance so be sure to check that out as well. Off we go. What are DORA metrics? The DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA) metrics are a set of key performance indicators (KPIs) designed to measure the effectiveness of software delivery and operational performance. Developed by experts in the field of DevOps, DORA metrics help organizations evaluate
