Measuring Individual Productivity

Mark Mzyk | April 10, 2008

I wish I had more to add to Steve McConnell’s post Measuring Productivity of Individual Programmers, but I don’t.

The short summary: don’t measure productivity of individual programmers.  Just don’t.  It’s a bad idea that returns you nothing.

He says a follow up post on measuring the productivity of teams is coming (which is something he does recommend).  I’m looking forward to what he has to say on that.
