Measuring Waste via Abort and Discard Analytics

Published on 8 Aug 2017

One of the core properties of Kanban is to measure and manage the flow. The success of flow is greatly influenced by the movement of the work, which needs to be fast and smooth. But, we often fail to achieve that momentum due to the waste generated by the system. In a typical Kanban scenario, […]

Tag Cloud

Published on 21 Jul 2014

The Tag Cloud metric gives you a collocated visual view to understand what are the key drivers of your board. Hence, if you assign tags to a card such as customers, technologies, specific themes, etc., you can analyze the biggest drivers for your deliverables. You can assign as many tags as you need to a […]

Adjacency Matrix

Published on 21 Jul 2014

Adjacency Matrix chart shows the movement of cards from one board column to the next.  You can track if the cards are following the entire process, column by column or not. If columns are skipped, it indicates that workflow is not followed, and probably there is scope for process improvement. The columns on the board […]

Flow Efficiency

Published on 7 Jul 2014

In Kanban, Flow Efficiency helps you measure the actual time you have spent on a workitem. So, the efficiency is calculated based on the actual work time measured against the total wait time. Higher the percentage of Flow Efficiency, better and smoother is the process having the ability to turn idea or request into a […]

Blocking Analysis

Published on 7 Jul 2014

The Blocking Analysis view helps you to analyze the most common reasons for blocking the cards by teams. You can do a Pareto analysis by looking at causes of bottlenecks because it helps stimulate thinking, organize thoughts, and continuous improvement. You can take corrective measures to address these reasons based on priority in the retrospectives. […]

Cumulative Flow Diagram(CFD)

Published on 23 Jun 2014

The Cumulative Flow diagram (CFD) provides a graphic depiction of how cards are moving through various statuses on the way to being ‘Done’. It shows us the total scope of a board, grouped by status, and thus lets us know how much of that scope is in a particular status at a given time. The […]
