Only half the story
It's important to realize that two different types of metrics are needed. The article deals with result metrics, which the article correctly points out too often are not appropriate. In addition, though, we need metrics that help us understand, maintain, and address causes of those correctly defined and measured results.

Making Sense
Great to see a more holistic and sense making approach to metrics. You hit the correct spots for organizational alignment and strategy. 

In the transition phase of replacing legacy metrics to power metrics, I suggest introducing reporting by exception and value reviews of existing metrics becomes a 12 monthly operation for the business.
