Metrics seems to be the part and parcel of any software development project. In typical waterfall development projects, different types of pre-defined metrics would be used across various projects even though each project is different. However when a team migrates to Agile methodology it becomes bit complicated. They get confused about the metrics to choose. This is because as such Agile methods are not prescriptive and freedom is given to the team to invent the ones which adds value to project. This instant freedom makes the team to come up with more questions than answers.
