It's a well known saying that "you can't manage what you can't measure" but using standard Agile metrics to measure a team can easily backfire.
For example, to try improve productivity a company could set a target for to deliver more story points. They'll find more story points will be delivered but it won't actually indicate improved productivity, just story point inflation. Story points are supposed to be used to help teams plan sprints, but the inflation means this doesn't really work any more.
