Effortless reporting strategies to maintain a productive team

Do you have the right tools to track your team’s performance?

We’ve all been on projects where the word “done” was enough to indicate that the project is ready to deliver. However, with no data gathered, we couldn’t quite understand whether we were actually on track for release or whether we needed to work more efficiently.

Long gone are those days. Today, with agile metrics, you can shed light on your product development cycle and your team’s performance as well.

Are you wondering where to start? Jira is a great place to find out. Managers will be fully equipped to track and report team performance with numerous features and reports.

Below, you can find the most utilized reports for efficient team performance tracking.


Cycle Time

Many teams measure velocity, which in scrum refers to the team’s momentum to finish assigned tasks in one sprint. However, it could be misleading and inaccurate and ends up putting false pressure on your team members. Cycle Time is a more accurate indicator for measuring delivery, speed and setting attainable deadlines.

Sprint burns down

Scrum teams organize development into time-boxed sprints. Therefore, the team should forecast what tasks are required and the time needed for work completion.

Sprint reports are composed of two axes. The x-axis indicates time, and the y-axis shows the amount of work left to complete. The goal is to complete the scheduled tasks at a specific time.

 Epic and release burndown reports

These reports give insight into the amount of time or sprint work to be released vs. story point or amount of work remaining. In other words, it helps you understand the amount of work completed in a sprint and guides you in forecasting how much work can be accomplished in a given time.

Control chart report 

Control chart report gives you the length or life span of an issue.

Meaning how long the issue will take from start to finish. In other words, this report predicts cycle time and lead time and will help estimate how quickly issues will be closed.

 Cumulative flow diagram

A diagram that lets teams visualize the progress of their work. Each colored area of the chart is equal to a workflow status. The cumulative flow diagram can help identify bottlenecks.

To sum it all up, team performance metrics affect two categories: firstly, individual-level performance; these metrics allow a clearer vision of the individual contribution to the team. And on the team level, they give insight into measuring the team’s performance.
