What Makes Measuring Software So Hard?
May/June 2001 (vol. 18 no. 3)
pp. 41-45
Implementing software measurement is difficult if it fails to align with an organization's market strategy. Using Michael Treacy and Fred Wiersema's The Discipline of Market Leaders as a guide, the author shows how traditional software measurement, like traditional software process improvement, is misaligned with two of the three basic strategies-customer intimacy and product innovativeness. Measurement initiatives can succeed if you understand your organization's strategic objectives and then tailor your measurement practices to fit.
