Unlocking the Power of Advanced Kanban Boards with Nave Integration

In the fast-paced world of project or product management, the efficiency of execution is key. Every minute saved and every bottleneck avoided can mean the difference between success and stagnation. For those who have embraced Advanced Kanban boards, the journey has been one of streamlined workflows and enhanced visibility on the flow bottlenecks. However, for all its benefits, there has been a crucial aspect missing: comprehensive reporting on key Kanban process measurements. Recognizing this gap, many have been asking for a solution to provide insightful metrics to drive continuous improvement.


Enter Nave -  probably, the best solution for Kanban metrics on the market.  


Nave seamlessly integrates with Advanced Kanban boards, offering users an intuitive Analytics tab where a measurements dashboard is just a click away. With Nave, teams can effortlessly measure crucial metrics that underpin their Kanban processes:

1. Cycle Time: This metric measures the time a task spends moving through your process, starting from when your team begins working on it, unlike lead time.

Nave allows teams to visualize their WIP limits and monitor them in real time, preventing overburdening and bottlenecks. This functionality greatly extends all types of work-in-progress limits configured in Advanced Kanban Boards.

 4. Team Performance: Measuring team performance is essential for ensuring that work is delivered efficiently. Metrics such as Cycle Time and Throughput are key indicators of team performance and should be closely monitored to ensure that teams are delivering results to customers effectively. Cycle Time, Throughput, and WIP are interconnected by Little’s Law, a fundamental principle in queuing theory. Understanding this relationship allows teams to optimize their workflows and improve their overall efficiency. 

 5. Bottlenecks. By leveraging Nave Kanban metrics, teams can spot bottlenecks as they occur. Signs such as increasing Cycle Time, decreasing Throughput, and sharp gradients in cumulative flow diagrams are indicators that teams should watch out for.

Forecasting with Nave

One of the standout features of Nave is its ability to forecast the time needed to complete work based on past execution times and Monte Carlo simulation. This feature allows teams to answer critical questions such as when tasks will be completed, why so slow, and how many tasks can be finished within a specified timeframe. A significant advantage of this method is the ability to define multiple scenarios and correctly estimate the probability of each of them:

Executive Dashboards for Organizational Insights

For organizations operating at scale, Executive Dashboards provide insightful metrics across all teams. These dashboards enable organizations to proactively spot bottlenecks and make data-driven decisions to improve team efficiency.

These dashboards can also immediately spot what teams require help right now and what the most critical areas to be focused on to do the right things.
