“EEBO Metrics keep growing into larger set”
EEBO Metrics should be a small set. Often Metrics keep growing due to fear of missing out (FOMO), pressure to show progress or to accommodate representation of teams, departments or leadership.
This anti-pattern can also be understood as adjacent to Conway’s Law. In 1968, computer programmer Melvin Conway made an observation that has since become known as Conway's Law. It states that "organizations which design systems... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations." In other words, the way that a company is structured will inevitably shape the way that its products and systems are designed.
Thus metrics keep growing to reflect each layer and slice of the organisation and its line of communication.
