- Dashboards for leaders who oversee multiple products, product lines, or entire departments help make data-based decisions that directly impact speed and agility. View • a larger version of the imageBusiness Agility Metrics
Improve market response and predictability
IT, group, and portfolio-level dashboards help executives and leaders identify systemic issues, drive improvements, and sustain transformation momentum.
- Maximize ROI. Value diminishes as work waits. Insights into efficiency and aging help focus the organization on getting the right work done, fast.
- Inform tradeoffs with capacity insights. Agility can only be reached if delivery teams are not overutilized. Use data-driven capacity insights to set priorities and make more effective tradeoffs.
- Improve decision-making. Strike the right balance between innovation and long-term sustainability with product management insights.
- Embed good practices. Our dashboards codify good lean-agile practices. Leaders and teams are alerted when value streams are becoming unhealthy so they can become proactive in solving problems.
- With Flow Metrics dashboards for end-to-end value streams, get visibility into the flow of work and its impact on business outcome. View • a larger version of the imageBusiness And Technology Alignment
Track flow to business outcomes
Flow Metrics create a common language to connect technology and the business. Start using these board-ready, simple, and consistent metrics to measure value delivery. Benefit from leading indicators into the impact of your transformation.
- Measure value from idea to outcome. Un-silo data to see where improvements and resources can drive better outcomes for your customers.
- Become data-driven. Track the impact of events, experiments, and resources on results to course-correct quickly and make smarter future investments.
- Correlate performance with results. Look at the system as a whole, all in one place. Track flow alongside outcomes from Financial, Operations, Customer Experience, OKR, and HR systems.
- Live value stream visualization and Bottleneck Finder help identify precisely where and why work is getting stuck. View • a larger version of the imageEfficiency and Cost Reduction
Identify bottlenecks and dependencies
Optimizing anywhere outside the system’s bottleneck is counter-productive. Bottleneck Finder traces work through all its steps and clearly visualizes where things are getting stuck.
- Visualize and tackle constraints. See where work is piling up and aging and focus your resources where it will make a difference.
- Reduce the rework and unplanned work. See at a glance when quality is deteriorating and get to the root cause by examining the source of the underlying defects.
- Understand and mitigate dependencies. Find out where process or product dependencies are slowing down delivery, and proactively take action to avoid missed commitments.
- Safely experiment to see results. Flow Metrics reflect the effectiveness of your improvement efforts. If it’s working, double down. If it’s not helping, try something else.
- Landscape View visualizes cross-tool integrations so anyone can understand what is flowing and how data is being normalized. View • a larger version of the imageCross-tool Integration
