Meaningful, Actionable Insights
For your Team's Performance

Advanced Analytics

SwiftKanban provides the widest range of Kanban metrics, including Lead/ Cycle Time, Throughput, Flow Efficiency, Blocking Time Analysis, Adjacency Matrix, and several others to help you focus on the right measure for improvement for your business. It ships with a widget-style Analytics view that lets you see all your charts at one glance. Each widget can be resized and filtered individually.

Kanban Predictive Analytics

Cycle Time

Cycle Time

Cycle Time generally represents the time a feature took to get completed, from the time it was prioritized and pushed to the board. Lead and Cycle Time charts present the average amount of time it takes for a task to be processed from the specified start to the finish point. These can be used to analyze the time required to traverse work items and to make improvements in the project performance.

In SwiftKanban, you can view Cycle Time for cards passed through specific columns or stages as an Overall Average, Column-wise Average, Distribution of cards within Cycle Time ranges, and cards within and out of control limits.

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 queues are skipped, it indicates that the workflow is not followed, and that there probably is scope for process improvement. This article on the Adjacency Matrix should help!

Adjacency Matrix

Cumulative Flow Diagram (CFD)

Cycle Time

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 CFD in SwiftKanban helps to track the performance of the board and how close you are to completing the board on a whole.

Blocking Analysis

Blocking Analysis provides you some great Root Cause analysis and shows you the impact of blocking on your organization. You can use it to define corrective actions during your next retrospective.

Blocking Analysis

Net Work-Time Report

Net Work-Time Report

Get a report of the ‘net’ work-time for each card while the card was in an “in-progress” lane, and was neither blocked nor unassigned. This way, the actual work on a card can be compared to the initial estimation.

Tag Cloud

Use the Card Tags to understand what are the key drivers of your Board. You can assign as many Tags to each card as you need. You can use the Tag Cloud to get a quick visual feedback of what are the biggest drivers of your board – customers, technologies, specific themes, etc. (Clicking on the tag gives you the full list of cards contributing to that Tag).

Tag Cloud

Flow Efficiency

Flow Efficiency

Flow Efficiency helps you measure the actual time you have spent on an item of work. If tells you how much of your work-in-progress is actually in progress. 

Throughput

Throughput, which is quite similar to the 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 against the lead time and the target delivery date and turning stories into working features.

Using SwiftKanban, you can measure throughput in terms of the number of cards delivered for a specified period. You can also track the break-up of the cards delivered, based on a specific attribute such as priority, class of service, size and so on.

Throughput

Board PlayBack
Board PlayBack

Board PlayBack

This is a unique feature that allows teams to ‘playback’ their progress on a Kanban board as a video, to review what happened over the review period and get a powerful, visual feedback of their board’s ‘health’.
