Drill Into Reports in Aha! Develop
"How can we increase velocity?" and "Why did we miss the sprint goal?" These are some of the questions agile teams ask in the pursuit of continuous improvement. The answers can be found by looking closely at team performance data. Visualizing trends, spotting anomalies, and narrowing in on the details all help you understand exactly what happened and why.
You can now drill into the data that fuels reports in Aha! Develop to understand performance at a more granular level.
Aha! Develop Advanced includes a variety of reports to help agile teams analyze team performance. From monitoring sprint burndown to measuring velocity and tracking weekly throughput — you can understand productivity trends and see where there is room to improve.
Today's update gives you a more detailed look at the data behind each report. Click on any data point — such as a particular day on the burndown chart or a bar on the velocity or throughput chart — to access a list report that includes details about the underlying work items and what changed. For example, you can see if work was added or completed or if an estimate increased. This makes it possible to see what happened so you can decide how to course correct going forward.
Report drill ins work similarly across all of the reports in Aha! Develop. As an example, let's take a closer look at the velocity report in particular:
Drill into velocity
Use past performance to effectively plan future sprints. In the velocity report below, we can see that the team's velocity is stable, but we consistently commit to more work than we can deliver. Further investigation reveals a pattern of new work being added mid-sprint. We can bring these insights to the next retrospective to discuss how to handle requests that come in once a sprint is underway.
Dig into the team's performance data to get a deeper understanding of what is working well and how to improve.
