Evaluation is a method to understand how work is being done. Whereas a Gemba Walk is to “go and see,” an evaluation is to ask, record, and provide feedback to an agile team or functional group. Evaluations are conducted against a known baseline, and they are performed by an objective, trained resource using a checklist or commonly understood set of criteria. Results are communicated to the agile team or functional group to help them improve team performance. Evaluations are valuable for understanding the consistency of behaviors across many teams within a large organization.
