About Kanban Flow Metrics

In order to build successful & productive teams, establishing a stable workflow is important. A stable workflow helps your organization to deliver the product faster and with greater customer value.

But how can you measure the success rate of your workflow and improve it?

The answer is simple – with statistically significant data.

And it is therefore essential to track the right metrics in order to make meaningful tweaks to your Kanban workflow and setup.

With Kanban metrics, you will be able to understand how your team is performing and where they need to improve. The key focus area for these metrics are measuring “time to value” or “time to market” thereby generating direct business value.

With Kanban metrics, you don’t need to guess when project work will be done, as they give you hard data on the productivity, efficiency, and reliability of your production process.

About the course

In this course, we’ll be discussing the key Kanban Flow Metrics, the relationship between them and the charts you should be following to track the progress of your workflow.

Please find below the key Kanban metrics we are going to cover in this course:

  • Work in progress

  • Cycle Time

  • Lead Time

  • Throughput

  • Work Item Age

Along with the above metrics, we are also going to cover Cummulative Flow Diagram followed by in-depth coverage of Little’s Law for a stable flow. We will also take you through some practical exercises for better understanding of these metrics & their application.

This course is ideal for software developers, project managers, software leadership, or anyone who is looking to build productive teams and delivering maximum value early to their customers.

It is suggested that you go through the course at a pace that makes sense for you. The topics build on each other, so it is better to slow down and really learn something than to just move on in order to keep up a certain pace.

So, I have the tools needed to get the job done. So, let’s do it, I’ll see you in class. All the best!
