# Performer Metrics

Metrics in this sense are really a more formal and principled way of reflecting on Development Environments as a way of achieving Continuous Learning and Improvement of Daily Work. They won’t be effective or even be possible to truly obtain until the environment is an empowering one Empowering Environments. Put another way, performer metrics are a way to ask the question “if one wants to increase Joy at Work, how can they do so most effectively?”

The main question here, I think, is when a performer encounters work, what can they do with it? How can they embrace it? And how can they judge the quality of their interaction with that work? Much focus is already placed on what happenswhat happens after a performer has already acclimated to a project; Focusing more explicitly on the meta-interaction between the performer and their work is valuable. So is thinking about the Bootstrapping People process.
