Rating Metrics > Intensity

Name

Intensity

Synopsis

Purpose
Establish a relative rating for heightened productivity and dealing with demanding issues.
Formula
Intensity = Saves + Tackles + (Avg. Temperature - 72)

Example

The individual coders on a software team are measured to have the following Skill Metric values for a software release:

Coder A: Saves 7, Tackles 2, Avg. Temperature 79.6
Coder B: Saves 3, Tackles 4, Avg. Temperature 66.3
Coder C: Saves 0, Tackles 3, Avg. Temperature 84.8
Coder D: Saves 1, Tackles 3, Avg. Temperature 69.5

The Intensity metric for each coder can then be calculated as follows:

Intensity Coder A = 7 + 2 + (79.6 - 72) = 16.6
Intensity Coder B = 3 + 4 + (66.3 - 72) = 1.3
Intensity Coder C = 0 + 3 + (84.8 - 72) = 15.8
