Agile encourages transparency to build trust with stakeholders outside the team. Work with the team to develop and publish information radiators which can provide the desired information to the stakeholders - these should ideally be automatically generated from the work management tools your teams are using.
Sorry if did not understand you but you are mixing things. Point 1, performance of whom? People or project performance? Why do you need that? You can use the GQM method to define the metric but if you are using Scrum you have lot of literature on the matter. Same for point 2. If you are using Scrum there is not project manager defined as a role.
1. Performance is referred to the performance of the newly formed team members as they are of different experience band so i have to measure there performance.This is more related to competency development Gap analysis to hire more people if current pool is not performing.
2.Being a small organization the project manager cum scrum master role is there as agile is not fully adopted in the organization.
Hope this information will shed more light on my issues .
Thanks for taking out time to help me out.
The issues being faced because agile is not fully adopted and there are many challenges being faced as I am trying towards changing the management mindset.
With this transition I have to build trust with virtual teams in Europe and US who are recently hired for the job.
The pressure is to measure the performance and provide inputs on will the team be able to pull off the project tasks.
So the trust,performance measurement and other aspects that I have mentioned comes in picture to ease the restlessness of the management in the company and also I need guidance to smooth out the process and proceed in right direction.
Hope the above information will add more details to my question. :)
1-into all environment but mainly in agile environments performance can be meassure in multiple ways. It is not new. You can find papers mainly from CMU SEI (Cargnefie Mellon University, Software Engineering Institute) on the matter. In my actual work place we have performance metrics tied to business objectives because the products people create are the enablers for getting business objectives.
2-Scrum Master and Project Manager are two different roles. It is not problem to have both (but in this case you are not following Scrum, you are using a customization) and it is no problem about one person take both roles. In fact, in my actual work place that is the situation. But the organization and mainly the person who is performed both roles must stay clear about the hugh differences.
Agree with Sergio
White papers from CMU SEI (Cargnefie Mellon University, Software Engineering Institute) are really good reads.I will take help from the same :)
