“Tell me how you’ll measure me…” (2)

Coincidence or not, after writing the last post, I’ve just received the InfoQ newsletter, which contains this article, about bonus distribution within agile teams. And what does it have to do with measures and incentives?

Well, if you want to have some great individuals, reward them based on individual performance, if you want a great team, don’t try to establish some weird criteria, and measure everyone’s performance based on the team result.

Like Mary Poppendieck cited on her book, distribution of bonus to an Agile team is like playing with dynamite.
