DORA - Accelerate: State of DevOps 2019: Elite performance, productivity, and scaling
Product Design and Development:
Flow Metrics:
■ Flow Load: Number of flow items being actively worked on in
a value stream, denoting the amount of WIP (work in progress).
■ Flow Time: Duration that it takes for a flow item to go from
being accepted for work into the value stream to completion,
including both active and wait time.
■ Flow Efficiency: The proportion of time flow times are
actively worked on to the total time elapsed.
■ Flow Velocity: number of flow items done in a given time.
Also referred to as throughput.
■ Flow Distribution: Mutually Exclusive and Comprehensively
Exhaustive allocation of flow items in a particular flow state
across a measure of time.

"My dear, here we must run as fast
as we can, just to stay in place. And
if you wish to go anywhere you
must run twice as fast as that."
Lewis Carroll,
Through the Looking-
Glass, and What Alice
Found There
We will never be
able to run fast
enough
Epiphany II: We will never be able to run fast enough

Value Stream Mapping
Drawn by Eric Wünsche
(non) value adding activities
Drawn by Eric Wünsche
We need to
change the way
we work
https://cloud.google.com/solutions/devops/devops-process-work-visibility-in-value-stream
Alignment with PACE Priorization
For each improvement idea:
●
What is the estimated effort?
●
What is the anticipated benefit?
Karen Martin, Mike Osterling: Value Stream Mapping: How to Visualize Work and Align Leadership for
Organizational Transformation
Mainly
patches
Mainly tickets from
feature releases
Are we really moving faster? (Feb 2021)
Yes, finally we are. (June 2021)
The final step?
Dr. John Kotter - The 8-step Process for Leading Change - https://www.kotterinc.com/8-step-process-for-
leading-change/
Summary
■ Making work visible: We were creating too much inventory
■ Visualizing flow: We will never be able to run fast enough
■ Value Stream Mapping: We needed to change the way we work
■ Made us move faster
■ Instituting change is the final step
