What you'll learn

  • How do we demonstrate we make improvements?
  • We need baseline, baseline, baseline 
  • People measure very often the wrong things, they confuse velocity with productivity 
  • Recommended SAFe metrics domains: predictivity, time health, productivity, quality 
  • Each domain has its own set of basics
  • Understand the difference between leading and lagging indicators  
  • Lagging indicators are typically output orientated, easy to measure but hard to improve or influence 
  • Leading indicators are input-oriented, hard to measure but easy to influence 
  • Team health metrics: staff turnover, sick days, e-NPS, Team and Technical Agility Assessment

Quality metrics: No. of escape defects, mean time of recovery, test automation, code quality.

  • Never compare team health agility to another team
  • Use the metrics to improve performance not raise competition
  • Increasing test automation and static code analytics will help to truck issues before our customers find out it as well

Productivity metrics: Feature Lead Time, Story Cycle Time, Number of Deploys

  • Focus on delays

Predictability metrics: Pi program predictability, Program Velocity, No. of features planned, No. of enablers features planned, No. of enablers features accepted, No. of stories planned, No. of stories accepted
