Metrics Fun: 2019 in Review


Hello, Atlassian Community! 

I thought it would be fun to do something different for my teams' last retrospective of 2019 so I'm planning to do a "year in review" with info-graphics. 

What creative metrics (Jira data or other), have you used with your teams in the past?  What ideas do you have for new metrics that might be fun or interesting to reflect on? 

Here are just a few from my brainstorm:

  • # issues opened vs resolved
    • for fun: if each resolved issue were printed on letter-size and laid end to end, how far would that chain reach
  • count by issue type
  • quickest/longest turnaround
  • oldest ticket
  • # releases or # commits
  • Top 3 reporters (by count)



I don't know how data-supported this was, but a team I was on a few years ago did informal "night owl" and "early bird" pins to recognize people when they were working really hard outside normal hours! (Not in a way that was encouraging everyone to work all the time, but in a genuinely appreciative way.)

Yes, you can use JQL filters and charts to get all this data, and put it in a Dashboard.

It will be fun to look at those reports - one year in review ! :)

Great idea @Shaun Sheehan !

How about:

  • Something related to your "Resolution" values.  I always find useful tidbits in there.  For example, high or low counts for "duplicate" or "can't reproduce" or "invalid" selections always make me want to learn more.
  • Most comments on a single issue
  • Most participants on a single issue
  • Most egregious or oldest bug/request remedied/addressed
  • Most expensive bug/request (most work logged on an issue)
  • Most impactful bug/request (money saved or value generated)  
  • Least used elements/schemes (So you can consolidate or clean them up in 2020!)  Ex: 
    • Statuses
    • Components
    • Workflows
    • Projects
    • etc.

Fun stuff...I love data!

Good luck with your report,

Most participants and users tagged would be interesting, especially if you're trying to resolve issues with as few hand-offs as possible.

Hi @Shaun Sheehan 

You can try to focus on users .. for example:

  • find users who are making many slow queries (that can be later optimized), 
  • check who is making many sessions
  • check who is generating the biggest REST API traffic (for example from IDE)
  • find users that are have many logins
  • get top 3 assignees
  • check who is logging time on tickets
  • who created most of the sub-tasks

I love the creativity and diversity in thought in the suggestions you all are coming up with!

Or Maybe some "negative" metrics like

Duration of last Login (in my instance I have found users with last Login April 2019)

Count the less user logins
