What is the best way to measure DevOps performance? There are many ways that people have tried to measure productivity in software delivery in the past -- what works and what doesn’t? In this webinar, Dr. Nicole Forsgren and Robert Reeves will present some lessons learned about measuring software delivery and why it’s important. The webinar will also highlight the key factors driving DevOps performance and offer a preview to some of the challenges on the horizon.

  • What really matters (hint: focus on outcomes)
  • The four measures that are key to delivery performance
  • The *big* difference between high performers and the rest
