Metrics are used to evaluate performance, compare results, and track relevant data to improve outcomes. They are excellent tool for piloting a role or a circle and help in making the right decision.
All members of a circle can add, edit or delete the metric of the circle and improve the metrics according to the circle's needs.
A metric is set by recurrence (daily, weekly, monthly...) and can be assigned to a role, a circle or a member in the organization.
Metrics are reviewed and validated during the circle's meeting at the circle meeting. For Holacracy practitioners, metrics are reviewed during the tactical meeting.

How to Validate a metric ?
The review of metrics allows each role of the circle, through key indicators, to have a global vision of the performance of the circle: where are we at today? The role that gives the value of the metrics can, if it wishes, comment very briefly.
You can validate your metrics at the tactical meeting or during a meeting containing the review of metrics. The secretary of the meeting can tick the relevant metrics if the member assigned carried out the action.
Tips ⭐ : You can group the circle metrics by recurrence, role or member for better readability in the meeting.
Note: You cannot check off the the metric from the role or circle page directly.
