Delivery Managers

“A complete understanding of your delivery capability (and how it is changing over time) is a critical part of effective delivery planning and forecasting”

WILL LYTLE, AUTHOR AND CUSTOMER SUCCESS DIRECTOR

Deliver value faster and more predictably with Plandek

Delivery Managers are under constant pressure to deliver to their stakeholders’ expectations and update on progress in a meaningful way. Often they have multiple  workstreams to worry about, with differing workflows and objectives.

In each case, a complete understanding of the teams’ end-to-end delivery capability is critical to:

  • effective progress reporting
  • accurate forecasting, and ultimately
  • effective delivery outcomes.

Prioritise and focus on critical delivery areas, risks and people

Delivery Managers can choose the metrics most applicable to them and their teams – for a new level of powerful insight across products, projects, boards, teams etc.

  • Create a custom view built around the questions that matter to you
  • Track improvements in your teams’ capabilities over time
  • Reduce delivery risk and improve your forecasting by identifying bottlenecks and predictors of delivery delays
  • See a quant view of real time engineer feedback
  • Easy drill-down to get to the root cause of the problem
  • Better manage offshore and contractor teams.

Plus Plandek LiveView – a real-time feed to optimise your sprints

LiveView enhances Plandek’s end-to-end delivery metrics platform by providing teams with a live feed identifying bottlenecks and ‘action items’ within a sprint as they occur.

Example LiveView feed:

The Plandek LiveView feed provides a live diagnostic of each ticket within the sprint, identifying anomalies that merit investigation and action. ‘Action items’ point teams to the tickets that are outside expected parameters, including:

  1. Ticket stalling: when tickets appear to stall at any point throughout the delivery process or exceed standard cycle times and require immediate action by the team
  2. Development complexity: commit size/count, files changed and other parameters exceed the norm for tickets of similar size and complexity
  3. Pull request anomalies: when pull requests stall or indicate a higher than normal level of activity, suggesting a team is struggling to merge
  4. Build event anomalies: when the builds containing the related tickets fail or succeed
  5. Deployment anomalies>: when tickets are deployed, or if the deployment failed and requires action.

The net result is self-improving, highly motivated, happier teams and better delivery outcomes.
