Measuring and Improving the Efficiency of Software Delivery - Jack Humphrey & Siva Dosapati, Indeed*

Imagine you start work on a feature on Monday at 10 am, and it goes live on Thursday at 10 am. We call that difference Delivery Lead Time -- in this case, a very respectable three days.

When you decrease Delivery Lead Time, you increase productivity. Improving productivity allows your teams to learn and evolve at an agile pace. If your project has 10 full-time contributors, a 10% gain in productivity is like adding another up-to-speed team member.

In this session, we'll show how we established delivery metrics for our teams. We'll explain how we analyze developer activity in Jira using Imhotep, our open source analytics platform. We’ll show the interactive tools we've built to explore these metrics and give teams insights into how they should evolve their process to accelerate delivery.

Attendees will leave this session with strategies for measuring and improving development efficiency. They will learn about tools they can use to establish similar metrics for their projects.
