Unlike Google, ActionableAgile Analytics can help a team look past keywords and dig into the real issues by analyzing the data that is produced by something as basic as moving a card across a board. In this talk we will share examples from the teams that have implemented the tool thus far, detail the importance of knowing the numbers related to Work in Progress, Cycle Time, and Throughput, and present known gaps and ideas for future improvement. We see ActionableAgile Analytics as a valuable tool for teams to use as they work to improve their process over time. Whether you use Scrum or Kanban are Dev or Ops, ActionableAgile Analytics can use your flow metrics and analytics to allow you to become a well-oiled machine that is predictable in delivery and accurately forecasts the future.
