“Our proprietary Xcelerate™ framework helps clients leverage the power of Plandek – it helps them build a hierarchy of meaningful metrics, tied to their core Agile objectives.”
Xcelerate™ starts by agreeing the ‘North Star’ metrics to be used by technology leadership to track overall improvement in software delivery.
Typically, these are delivery metrics that underpin the core Agile objective of the ‘early and continuous delivery of valuable software’. And they are carefully chosen to be meaningful when viewed at aggregate level.
Commonly used leadership metrics are shown below.
The Xcelerate™ framework helps you select a hierarchy of meaningful metrics that collectively underpin your core software delivery objectives. These metrics stretch across your SDLC and are typically owned by Engineering, Delivery, PM, and DevOps.
Our Customer Success team works with our clients to agree on a set of metrics that meet their particular circumstances. The most popular of these metrics are shown below.
Xcelerate™ is not a rigid framework. Instead it is intended as the basis from which clients can build their own bespoke metrics sets that more closely mirror their objectives.
As such, there are a variety of commonly used metrics setting approaches – such as OKRs (Objectives and Key Results) or GQMs (Goal, Metric, Question) which can also be applied to define a bespoke metric set. These bespoke metrics can then be surfaced in customised dashboards using Plandek.
For scaled Agile clients who require large-scale (transformative) consulting support, we suggest working with one of our trusted implementation partners.
