Lean Analytics

Articles on Lean Analytics available in SwiftEASe

Abort and Discard Analytics

One of the core properties of SwiftEASe 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 SwiftEASe scenario, […]

Flow Efficiency

In SwiftEASe, Flow Efficiency helps you measure the actual time you have spent on a work item. 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 […]

Card Distribution

The pie-charts give a bird’s eye view on the distribution of cards visually, based on key attributes such as: Cards by Priority: For example, Cards of High priority over cards of all priorities Cards by Size: For example, Cards of size XL over cards of all sizes Cards by Class of Service: For example, Cards […]


In SwiftEASe, Throughput, which is quite similar to Agile Velocity metric, indicates the amount of work being done in a given period. The unit of work can be interpreted in terms of user stories, story points or others. Throughput can be a useful indicator in understanding how well the team or the organization is performing […]

Blocking Analysis

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

Cumulative Flow Diagram 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 […]

Adjacency Matrix

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 […]

Card Data Analyzer

Card Data Analyzer at the Board Level 1.To access the Card Data Analyzer at the board level, go to Board menu > Lean Analytics. On the Lean Analytics page, navigate to the Card Data Analyzer. 2.Select the table or chart format from the drop-down list. 3. Select the summarization method such as count, average, sum from the […]

Burndown Chart

SwiftEaSe provides the Burndown chart for the team to track its progress against a Program Increment(PI)a sprint plan in their daily scrum meetings. Burndown charts that can be tracked for any board containing tasks with estimates and actual effort, is a graphical representation of outstanding work (or backlog) against time. It is useful for predicting […]

Tag Cloud

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 card. […]
