While agility is seen by many as a means to an end, a number of approaches
have been proposed to quantify agility. Agility Index Measurements (AIM) score
projects against a number of agility factors to achieve a total. The
similarly-named Agility Measurement Index, scores developments against five
dimensions of a software project (duration, risk, novelty, effort, and
interaction). Other techniques are based on measurable goals. Another study
using fuzzy mathematics has suggested that project velocity can be used as a
metric of agility.
While such approaches have been proposed to measure agility, the practical
application of such metrics has yet to be seen.
