Agile Reporting

Avatar

Level 2

02-11-2018

Great to now have agile work options, but to actually manage agile teams we need improved reporting. For example, a Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD) will help measure lead time (time from request to completion), cycle time (actual start to completion) as well as the number of work-in-progress items in various statuses. This way we can visualize the stability of our workflow and find where improvement is needed. Here's a CFD chart borrowed from the web:

Other types of valuable agile reports can be:

  • Throughput histogram - number of tasks finished per time unit
  • Work in Progress Aging - Scatter chart showing # of days for open tasks

And to support any true migration to agile, custom statuses must be allowed for agile teams.
