If you need a bit more flexibility than the built-in charts can give you, we have put together a how-to for building PowerBI Dashboards for Kanbanize.
How long will it take to complete a complex project with say 100 work items? To answer this question, you want to get to know the Monte Carlo simulation.
Keep an eye on current performance levels with the WIP Run Chart and Aging WIP Chart and detect possible risks long before they become problems.
To deliver work faster (who does’t?), you need to know where to focus. The Flow Efficiency and Heatmap charts are two important tools you need to know!
Learn how to use the Cycle Time Scatter Plot to predict how long it will take to complete some work. You will also see some common patterns to look out for.
The Cumulative Flow Diagram is arguably the most versatile chart used in Kanban. It not only shows the 3 key flow metrics but also reveals a lot of details.
When will this be done? To answer this question (and avoid the frustrations of getting it wrong), you need to learn about flow metrics. This is your intro!
Only when you see your organisation as a network of services can you expect to actually improve the customer experience. This is what Kanban Lens 4 is about!
Kanban lens 3 teaches us to see all knowledge work as a service. This has many benefits, but most importantly it allows us to improve our intangible work.
In episode 2 of the Kanban Lens series you’ll learn how to see your workflow as a sequence of valuable knowledge-discovery steps instead of just hand-offs
