How do I report on flow in Jira Align

Ian.Bower I'm New Here Sep 09, 2019

I would like to report on flow times from one state to the next and overall flow time of Epics, Features and Stories in Jira Align relating to Themes. How can this be done at all levels (portfolio, program and team)?

Hi Ian,

Two reports come to mind. The first is the Work in Process report. It shows all work assigned to a selected Program Increment by work item State and includes a series of lean metric charts. For each work item type (Epics, Capabilities, Features, Stories), you can view the following:

  • Work in Process: Line graph showing the number of items in process during the defined time period.
  • Cumulative Flow: Stacked line graph showing the number of items in an In Progress state, layered against the number of items in an Accepted state during the defined time period.
  • Lead Time: Line graph showing the average amount of days work items were in the In Progress state during the defined time period.
  • Cycle Time: Line graph showing the average difference, in days, between the date the work items went into the In Progress state and the date they were moved to an Accepted state during the defined time period.

The second report is the Process Step Cycle Time report. If your organization is using Value Streams or custom States (Process Steps), for each work item type (Epics, Capabilities, Features, Stories), you can view the following:

  • Value Stream Process Step Cycle Time: Bar graph showing the average time each process step of a value stream remains in a certain stage. In the top-right of the graph, the average time a work item remains in the value stream is displayed.
  • Value Stream WIP: Bar graph showing the percentage of time that work items have remained in each process step. For example: during the selected data range, epics have been In Progress for 30% of the time. In the top-right of the graph, the average number of work items that are in the value stream for the target date range is displayed.
  • Value Stream Detailed Throughput: Line graph showing overall average, completed work items as points, rolling average, and standard deviation of work items in the value stream at any given time

Let me know if either of these provide what you're looking for!
