About

The cycle time for a work item is the time it takes to get from one being in progress to completed. Traditionally in Agile Central this is shown as a column chart - https://help.rallydev.com/cyclelead-time. This app shows your cycle time data as a scatter plot so you can view the distribution of cycle times and explore outliers.

 

Use Cases

Inconsistent cycle time will cause inconsistent delivery, so flow-based Kanban teams will love this chart as a way to identify deviations from their standard cycle times. The app includes percentile lines, and you can dig into the most inconsistent cycle times to identify root causes and improvement actions.
