My company operates in a Scrum fashion, using two-week sprints, holding ceremonies, etc. A new member of leadership in our Engineering department seems to think it would be a good idea to keep metrics showing each developer's "personal velocity" each sprint.
On the surface, this sounds very "anti-Scrum" to me. I can't help but feel that breaking down our existing scrum team metrics into individual metrics will only push the members of our scrum teams to focus on their own commitments and accomplishments rather than those of their scrum team as a whole.
I'd love to hear some feedback on this. Good idea? Bad idea? If we do it, how do you think it should be calculated? (i.e. total sprint velocity divided by number of team members?)
