Agile Tools will provide a number of metrics grouped into four Key Value Areas. The list is comprehensive but by no means complete as the library will continue to grow.

Each Key Value Area (KVA), you might as well call them dimensions, will have a set of metrics best suited for the area in question. There are four of them:

Current ValueTime to MarketAbility to InnovateUnrealized Value
Current ValueTime to MarketAbility to InnovateUnrealized Value

In current Agile Tools Beta the focus is only on Ability to Innovate with six metrics. The next release will introduce a new dashboard look to emphasize the radar chart’s value and a whole new editor concept as we (TeamPoolz) are laying the foundations for the plethora of metrics to come.

There are several attributes you can organize metrics by:

  • Key Value Area (or Dimension)
  • Recommended frequency to provide measurements
  • Scope of a metric
  • Role of a person most probable to provide measurements (when not automated)

Let’s group metrics by dimension (primary) and by frequency (secondary).

Ability to Innovate

Weekly
Cycle
Monthly
  • Innovation Rate
  • Feature Usage Index
  • On-product Index
  • Installed Version Index
  • Technical Debt
  • Active code branches
4 x Cycle
  • Team Member Turnover

Time to Market

Weekly
  • Mean Time to Repair
Monthly
  • Cycle Time
  • Lead Time
  • Build and Integration Frequency
  • Release Frequency
  • Release Stabilization Period
Quarterly
  • Time to Learn

Current Value

Monthly
  • Customer Usage Index
  • Customer Satisfaction
  • Employee Satisfaction
Quarterly
  • Product Cost Ratio
  • Employee Turnover
  • Revenue per Employee

Unrealized Value

Monthly
  • Customer Satisfaction Gap
Quarterly
  • Market Share

The expected dynamics of measurments to be provided for each metric will have defaults as listed above, but might change as we gain more knowledge and market feedback.

All of the above metrics fall into one of three scopes:

  1. Organization
  2. Product
  3. Team

You will be able to gather and observe statistics for several teams and several products.

Each metric in each Key Value Area (Dimension) will drive the KVA Radar so you will be able to see an aggregated score across teams and products. In turn, each KVA Radar will provide KVA score to the main Radar – providing you an insight into your organization’s Business Agility Points.
