About this talk

Ask leaders and you’ll hear the same story: pull request metrics and DORA dashboards aren’t giving us the insights we’d hoped for. In this talk, I share first-hand experience and research on why today’s conventional metrics don’t work, and present a better approach. Learn core concepts that inspired the paper “DevEx: What Actually Drives Productivity”, authored by Abi Noda, Dr. Nicole Forsgren, and others.
