Flow Metrics to live by.

Tasktop Viz dashboards create a common language for tech and business leaders around the flow of business value through your product value streams:

Avoid the product death spiral.

Avoid the product death spiral.

If feature velocity is slowing down, defect distribution is going up, and there’s no sign of debt in your sprints, you are heading into the product death spiral.

Tasktop Viz helps you adjust course before it’s too late. The Flow Metrics dashboards are color-coded to represent the four flow item types:

  • Features: new capabilities valued by customers
  • Defects: fixes to quality issues
  • Risks: risk mitigation work related to security, governance and compliance
  • Debt: removal of impediments to future delivery

Use your color-coded metrics to negotiate necessary-yet-uncomfortable tradeoffs, so you can secure the longevity of your products.

Teams left to their own devices will perform local optimizations. Leaders are counted on to do the systems-thinking for the larger group.

Tasktop Viz provides that larger perspective. It constructs the Flow Metrics dashboards from the combined work of all value stream contributors, including product managers, architects, UX designers, developers, testers, release managers, support teams and operations.

By analyzing data from ideation to production, Tasktop Viz finds your system bottlenecks. So you can focus efforts on changes that will truly increase end-to-end flow.
