Pluralsight is a really good resource for software developers to skill up on their coding, but Pluralsight Flow is for team development. But, the only benchmarking mentioned by Pluralsight Flow is the “Industry Benchmarks” article in the support part of their website.
In their own words:
“Industry benchmarks are reference points based on the software development industry. Use industry benchmarks to see how your team compares with the industry. This can help you and your team identify potential areas of growth.”
Where does this data come from? They reference having analyzed 7 million commits by about 88k software engineers throughout 2016. Their analysis examined four main metrics: Active Days per Week, Commits per Active Day, Impact, and Efficiency.
Ok, so you can compare your teams against the industry in the mentioned above areas.
But how can you verify what’s going on inside your own company? Do you have to collect your metrics scores per team and upload them to an excel table to actually get some actual insights?
