How Software Engineering Leaders Can Use Value Stream Metrics to Improve Agile Effectiveness

Company: Code Climate

As software engineering leaders scale agile development to more teams, they often struggle to help teams optimize their processes. In this Gartner report, you'll learn how the emerging field of flow analytics provides visibility to continuously improve processes for business leaders, product managers and the teams themselves..

Key findings from the report include:

  • Suboptimal processes and performance across teams undermine the software engineering leader’s agile transformation efforts.
  • Without consistent metrics on detailed operations, software engineering leaders have no way to guide teams and coaches on best practices. They also have no way to pinpoint the specific areas that each team needs to focus on.
  • The same lack of visibility can cause business leaders to question progress reporting from software engineering leaders, undermining trust.
